Chateau Beaulieu comtes de tastes 2006

83 points

Bordeaux Superieur. 13%

A very superior Bordeaux Superieur but in this vintage they are trying too hard. It’s a dense dark concentrated and extracted. The first thing that struck me on the nose, as it were, was greenness. I’ve not tried many 2006, wasn’t really expecting this.

I suspect that 2006 is not unlike 2002 capable of producing some very good wines (on the right bank 2002) but also some unbalanced forced green wines.
