2003 Chateau Moulinet-Lasserre Pomerol

After a long day of work it seemed like a good idea to uncork a nice bordeaux. My only concern had this wine aged enough or was I opening too soon. Place your bets....... ok if you said too soon you might be correct. Each flavor was very prounounced and bold but lacked the methodical flow of flavors of aged bordeaux's. A nice wine but I'm sure in 5 years a much better one.

Blackberry jam and smokey oak were huge at the start. Plum, chocolate with expresso notes and clove. I decanted for over 2 hours.

In the mouth plum and blackberry almost jammy with hints of black cherry/dark chocolate. Clove and big oak on the finish. Nice wine but I think with age I would enjoy even more.
