Chateau Siaurac 2002 (review)

83 points (Byron)

87 points (Anne)

Lalande de Pomerol, Bordeaux, France. 13.5%

Dark, rich, fruitcake plummy aspects that you’d expect in a ripe Right Bank wine. But I found it over-extracted. Anne liked it as a ‘drink without food’ wine. It’s not really New World in style, the fruit isn’t overtly sweet and there is a distinctive bitterness to providing a bit of balance, but (for me) this really isn’t what claret is about.

Bought from Vintage Cellars (Adelaide).  Not expensive, about US15.
