Château Suau, Premières Côtes de Bordeaux 1994
A minor claret from an unfashionable appellation, but it has a good reputation. The colour is a solid, earthy ruby. The nose has very sweet, cedary fruit and soft notes of vanilla and summer berries. The palate is quite fruity, but is dominated by silky tobacco and new-oak flavours, underpinned by decent tannins and low-acidity. There's reasonable depth and richness to the fruit and wood balance. Really rather a nice wine for not a lot of money, for current drinking as it is drying just slightly in the finish. (08/99)
