If you want taste a wine young but intense, strong but well balance, PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS WINE !
If you have the choice, do not take this wine because 2004 is too young for this kind of wine. I tried, with some pasta (italian style in a traditional french restaurant in Paris). It was one of the most cheaper red wine in the wine list. With a friend we decided to take the risk of a Listrac-Medoc instead of a traditional Pessac-Léognan or a Pauillac (so « terroir » :))
It was absolutely not the good choice, this red wine was to small (like a trousers too small for your legs). Only the smell is barely acceptable (but for a Bordeaux it’s the basics). And of course no finish at all except for the alcohol.
Please forget this one…. for this vintage.
For the record, the glass near the bottle in the picture, is not mine, but a decanter.
