Chateau De Seguin Cuvee Prestige 2008 reivew by (PB)
Dark garnet hue with spice, vegetal blackberry jam, and light tobacco.
Palate--Silky texture that is integrated with tar and decent blackberry fruit, that while a bit subdued is nicely balanced on a frame that tastes older than it is.
It finishes with a touch of oak and smoke.
This is drinking really well for such a young Grand Vin De Bordeaux. I paid $10 for it at Trader Joe's but read on line where someone found it at a TJ's for $6. At $10 it is worth buying a few bottles, at $6--knock yourself out and raise many glasses!
