Château Vignelaure 2000 La Colline de Vignelaure Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon (Coteaux du Verdon)

This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet is aged in 100% new oak, and even seven-plus years after the vintage the oak is still prominent—there's lots of vanilla and toast upfront. That said, the wine has a rich, creamy texture and plenty of black cherry and herb notes come through on the finish, so the bet here is that this just needs another year or two before being ready for primetime.
