Comments on Specials for the nite

I managed to get a sampling of these wines.

Ch. Lamothe Bergeron 2007
Nice fragrance and bouquet had my hopes up, but failed in the palate with overpowering spice and tannic that threw the wine out of balance.

Will I buy it? No

Ch De Pressac St. Emillion 2006
Almost no aromas on the nose. On the palate it was smooth and welcoming, with good length, but needs a few more years for aging.

Will I buy it ? A begrudging maybe
