Chateau Tour St. Bonnet 2000 (review)

85 points

Haut Medoc, Bordeaux, France. 12.5%

I did not like this wine when it arrived in 2003. The fruit seemed unpure and unconcentrated. But it has evolved into rather nice claret. Green and black olive notes on the nose. Supple, savoury, light wine. Without great fruit intensity but the finish is quite long. Very good table/food wine. For drinking over the next few years.

  1. Very much light table claret with greenness on the nose which many will find confronting (or just disappointing). But this is quite lovely with food. It has a lovely juicy acid balance. Light but not dilute. 85 points drink now and in 2007
