Chateau Belon 1998 wine review of (PB)

This Bordeaux has a great bouquet on opening which reminds me a bit of the tapestry I just reviewed after this entry. On opening it is tight, austere and needs air.

Made of Cabernet Sauvignon 40%, Merlot 55% and Cabernet Franc 5% this Grand Vin De Bordeaux is thin on the pallet compared to Tapestry with big pepper flavors, and surprisingly fruit forward for a Graves wine. (Graves is the region in Bordeaux)

This is a straight forward wine with some years left ahead of it. I don’t how much it sells for as (NW) provided it. (My guess is around $18) Very nice.
