Chateau Puygueraud 2000 (Review)

88+ points

Cotes De Francs, Bordeaux, France. 13%

Nicolas Thienpont has created one of the great bargains of Bordeaux. This is very savoury, and although in 2000 a ‘George’ reserve cuvee which is mostly Malbec was made, there must have been enough Malbec left over because this wine (the normal Puygueraud) also tastes of Malbec. It’s very drinkable with food in spite of the very substantial tannins. Serious deep wine. OK it’s without the class of a classed growth, missing the fine fruit, but it has great structure and hearty flavour.
