Chateau Faizeau selection veilles vignes 2002

83 points

Montagne Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France. 13.5%

Dark, subdued nose, this seems like a heavily extracted wine, which in a lean to classic vintage like 2002 makes for rather hard drinking. I’m not sure why they needed to make a wine with this alcohol and extract and hard green tannins. Perhaps it will develop some charm with time. Leave until 2009.
