(Chateau Teyssier St Emilion) Having enjoyed the 1998-2000 vintages, I thought this might be good with the venison. Decanted for an hour or so before tasting - thank heavens it wasn't corked. Good deep colour, and early evolution on the nose which shows a meaty, secondary edge to the fruit. A little featureless on the palate, however, which seems to lag behind the nose a little. I suspect this needs time in the cellar to develop, although it performed well on the night, demonstrating a good texture and nice, slightly marrowy mouthfeel. Good.
