Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France. 13%
I expected to like this a bit more than I did. For a 2002 it is a big muscular claret. After tasting several vintages I really do suspect that they add acid, and pick pretty ripe. I prefer a more charming style, but this is impressive nevertheless. Needs a few more years, but definitely try again before 2012 it might mature early.
