Château Mondain ‘Chevalier D’Albran’ (Bordeaux AoC) 2008

Tasted 03/09/11 with Beata, Sara and Jean Marc. 13.5%. £7.96 from Bordeaux Undiscovered. Blend M 70, CS and CF 15% each. Deeper purple colour. Great aromas of cassis, toasty oak and pencil box, the most classically claret-like of the four wines tasted. Dark fruits and hint of bell peppers and some vanilla in the mouth. Good grip, firm tannins, fruit slightly masked for now but long finish. Reminds me of a young Right Bank wine. Superb value. From 2013, 16.5 / 20.
