A really nice wine. Opens up with a distinct minerality; chalk/clay combined with dried red fruit and dusty tannins. 12.5% alcohol. Refined and elegant, this reminds me more of a Burgundy than a Bordeaux. This is by by no means a grand vin, but it strikes me as a wine that is honest and tells me where it comes from and hence it is very satisfying. Nice.
Interestingly enough, this bottle of red was mislabeled as a "white" bordeaux, not a red. So, the question is, is it truly a 2001. Light and earthy, with a medium finish. Very smooth and easy to drink. Nothing bad at all about this red blend, although I don't know that I would get it again.
