"Thoroughly delicious, this Merlot based wine offers a dash of Pomerol-like plushness and breed at a petit château price. It opens with a bright bouquet of blackberry, mocha-vanilla, and violets. One the palate, medium-bodied, with juicy black cherry and red berry fruit, finishing with soft, velvety tannins and a hint of vanilla. Wonderful purity, loaded with easy-drinking charm; yet there is considerable depth here as well."

The chateau buildings date from 1892, and resemble a cross between an 18th century English country house and a luxury mediterranean villa all whitewashed and topped with a red-tiled roof. The vineyards originally belonged to another estate, and were purchased by the Avril family some years later. Recently, Bernard Avril has invested considerable time and effort in improving both vineyard practices and winemaking, with the result that this is now a respected source of quality Bordeaux at remarkably affordable prices.
The secret here is location. The wines are labelled Bordeaux Suprieur, but the grapes are grown close to, and in some cases, over the border into better known Fronsac. The clay and limestone slopes and microclimatic influences are very similar to the terroir found in nearby Saint Emilion. Not surprisingly, Merlot works very well here.
It's important to remember that taste is subjective, and personal preferences play a significant role.
