Wine Wednesday!

wine wednesday

This Wednesday’s wine selection is a 2005 Bordeaux from Chateau Bellevue Peycharneau. It was an ok wine, but it’s probably not as drinkable for those who don’t usually indulge in red wines.

Here are my notes:

  • dark plum color
  • strong fruit scent
  • earthy, mineral taste
  • lighter texture

And this is from the professionals:

from  “Deep garnet robe with mauve reflections. A beautiful nose, very concentrated, complex. Woody, vanilla flavors, delicately toasted notes, and red cherry aromas. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, fleshy, structured, velvety. Good tannic balance. A beautiful, savory finish, with a long, aromatic persistence.”
