Château Puy-Blanquet Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2006 Bordeau Red Wine, $25.99-$29.99 (current price range), 85 points, appeared an unfiltered ruby-red grading garnet with a thin clear wine ring.
The aroma was near "dumb" with only hints of black currant and leather.
Medium bodied with good acidity and mostly resolved tannin struggled to make a wine statement, being as non-descript a red wine as I've ever had; a slight woody, smoky boysenberry made for a rather bland/innocuous flavor profile, but fortunately there was nothing bad tasting.
Finished fair on coffee, spice, and tobacco notes with an innocuous 13% alcohol.
