Chateau Queyssard 2005 Bordeaux

Another bargain (€3.30 !) red from Bordeaux with a remarkable meaty bouquet and mouthfeel.  The aroma immediately struck us as something yummy and reminiscent of much more expensive Bordeauxs.  After finishing this bottle with freinds and opening another similar-priced Bourdeaux, we immediately wanted another Queyssard.  A real standout, very satisfying with layers of flavors and great quality for such a low price.
