A sleeper of the vintage, this consistently excellent generic Bordeaux displays a deep ruby/purple color, slightly sweeter, broader and more luxurious flavors than usual because of the vintage, good purity, brightness and a heady finish. Drink it over the next 4–5 years.

This nicely focused red delivers dark fig and steeped currant fruit melded with dark cocoa and tobacco. Shows solid flesh through the finish. Drink now through 2013.

Two well-made generic Bordeaux are consistently fashioned by Thieuley. Readers who do not want any wood should buy the regular cuvee, but if you like a little oak, the Francis Courselle should be your choice. Both wines possess generous fruit, and lots of black cherry and black currant notes intermixed with herbs and spice. The Francis Courselle cuts a slightly bigger, oakier, more modern image on the palate, but both wines are well-made and reasonably priced. (Tasted once.)
