Medoc, Bordeaux, France. 12.5%
Perfectly respectiable deep colour, not opaque nor purple but a colour showing no signs of decay.
Odd, shellfish minerally nose.
Austere, minerally wine. Good body and structure, not alcoholic nor weighty, nor light or dilute. But very linear flavour structure.. steel, slate.
I am not convinced this bottle is alright, in that I did not expect such minerality. But with food it did turn well. The next bottle will be interesting to compare.
