    But Château des Annereaux is more than a historical conversation piece—their ‘Grand Vin’ is a master class on Right Bank red and this 2007 illustrates the complex subtleties that come with mature, finely crafted Bordeaux. Decant this well-aged red for sediment and enjoy classic Right Bank flavors of red and black currant, dried blueberry, Bing cherries, red plums, damp earth, dried mushrooms, cocoa dust, cedar, wet clay, bay leaf, vintage leather, and delicate baking spices.
