Ch. Jean Guillot 1990 St. Emilion
11/95. A simple, unclassified (I think) St. Emilion.
COLOR: Normal violet-red, noticeable paling towards the rim.
NOSE: Pleasant aroma of black currants. Medium woody bouquet. Hints of

short on acidity.
OVERALL: Quite good as a non-pretentious wine. I have no idea what it costs

not an expert at this price-range, but I believe there are better wines for
MARK: 14/20.aaaaaaaaBUY MORE? No.
