Chateau Le Bourdieu 2000 (PB)
This Cru Bourgeois is from the Medoc of the famed vintage of the century. It has a big aroma laden bouquet. It is tart in the mouth, closed, tight, with austere tannins. Not much flavor due to immaturity. This wine must be breathed and it will open I am confident.
With some time, it yields a bouquet laden with chocolate and keeps on giving with a little menthol. It is still fairly tight but loosening up. Berries are starting to come up with sweet fresh cherries in the bouquet now. Tannins are still heavy; this wine will age for years. It is a good quality old world wine with subtle nuances that will only get better with some time. I would hold this for another 2-3 years before drinking. It was $12. Buy another and hold it a couple years.
