Chateau Coufran Haut-Medoc 2000 (billy)

I had a glass of this wine on a NorthWest Airlines flight from the US to London. I was flying business class and the flight was long and the wine was gratus (as it ought to be on a ticket topping out around $5K US). The wine had nearly no time to breathe but that was ok. It displayed ripe cherries, red berries and mint on the nose. The palate was rich and creamy with a robust but quick finsish. There was lots of fruit that emerged as the wine sat exposed to the air. This wine has a lot of California in it. It's fruity but complex but not fruit-punchy.

It was nice to have a decent wine on an airline flight.

It's worth a look up.
