2003 Chateau St Georges Bordeaux St Georges St Emilion

If you have never treated yourself to a bottle of bordeaux its probably time you spoil yourself. Mine happened to be a gift from a good friend 3 1/2 years ago. Why did I cellar for so long? Cause it said best to consume in 2010 and 2011 is about here so now you know :)

Prior to even thinking about taking a drink the cork was removed for well over an hour to allow the wine a chance to open up. Once in the glass a wonderful dark fruit aroma of blackberry and plum followed by raspberry, a hint of tobacco and oak. Nicely layered and very pleasing to the nose. The wine is 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc.

Classic taste on this beauty. The combination of rich plum, juicy black raspberry, ripe blackberry was a palate pleaser. Earthy with a slight hint of oak but definately full bodied yet a soft silky finish. Excellent wine.
