Enjoyed at the Cos and Vieux Chateau Certan tasting dinner. Separated for easy reading.
A wine made up of 50% merlot. Some slight signs of ageing. Nose of wet earth, herbs, some chocolate and bell pepper. Some inital sweetness, very mouthfilling. Tannins evident and integrated with the overall experience. Some heat on the finish with delicious coating of the throat. Extra long finish. Interesting, complex, beautiful and balanced. A great wine yet only my 3rd favourite on the night. I would drink this anytime.
