Not Dull
10/17/2006
by Willner11428512
The 2000, perhaps a much better vintage than the 1998, strikes me as a well-made, fruit-forward Bordeaux with ample tannins. Not a complex wine but thoroughly enjoyable.
A matter of taste?

As far as I'm concerned, it's a matter of taste. I'll absolutely agree that this wine is not showing extremely well today, but it is also not made with early drinking in mind. If that's your thrust, then indeed look elsewhere. I opened the 1998 for a try this weekend. The colour is dark as night, and the tannins have not yet opened up. My best guess is it will cellar well far longer than the average '98, and so if you have the space and the patience, this wine will prove an excellent investment in future drinking pleasure. Let's not talk about the 2000, because I need to hurry back and buy a box -- it will be a smash hit in ten to fifteen years.
Nice, not dull, but it is a bit thin

This was another nice wine. As my name indicates, I'm not an expert so take this with that in mind. I had the 2003 vintage and I did like this wine. I found it to be very smooth, not too acidic with nice amount of tannins. It was a bit thin for a medium bodied wine but not so much that it made it difficult to drink. I'd buy it again to have with a meal.
