"Jacquet’s brilliant ruby color opens the drinking experience with a burst of joy. Immediately following is a siren call of black cherries, high-toned notes of pomegranate and touches of ripe cranberries, with hints of wood smoke and graphite. It is instantly appealing, instantly recognizable as Bordeaux, and instantly generates a smile. The palate follows through in similar fashion, with a juicy black fruit character, sparks of minerality, and a long, velvety finish. Equally at home with a simple turkey soup supper or a beautiful beef roast, this is delicious red for all occasions."
