"Deep, saturated medium red. Black raspberry syrup and a whiff of truffle on the nose. Superrich and thick but sappy too, showing more spicy lift and tangy berry fruit than the Haut-Doix. Still showing a bit of unabsorbed (malic?) acidity on the fresh finish."

"Not as elegant as the Les Hauts Doix but packed with bold, opulent flavors, Les Sentiers is a bigger wine with assertive aromas and flavors of fresh mushroom, dry earth, and dried and fresh cherries, finishing with fine, suave tannins. Give this one some time in bottle to really appreciate its qualities."
