Chateau Bois Martin 2000 (NW)

Chateau Bois Martin 2000:

Dark berries on the nose
Currant and blueberry layers on the palate
Smooth texture
Elegant finish

Nice, but not exciting. This is a Bordeaux from Pessac-Leognan and has some of the classic Bordeaux elegance that I like. The problem is that it seems a little flat. It may be the bottle and fortunately I have another so I'll be able to compare. This is from the year 2000 which is the "vintage of a lifetime" in Bordeaux according to many critics. Because of that, there are so many exciting wines to choose from that I probably won't look for this again unless my second bottle really surprises me. I paid $25. Raise a glass of Bordeaux, but find an exciting one!
