Chateau De Montpezat Les Enclos 2003 wine review by (PB)
I had this wine about a year ago and enjoyed it then and bought another bottle to lay down for another year. this is THAT bottle. Wow! This is a Vin De Pays D'oc wine called Merlot Prestige. (The label at left is NOT the exact label. Where the word "Palombieres" appears, would be the words "Les Enclos.")
It is purple and a pretty black garnet with a bouquet of black cherry and a touch of cedar.
In the mouth this wine is really well made with bold tannins, a touch of spiciness, and dark fruit right out of the gate but benefits from breathing an hour or so.
There is a layer of black licorice with 15 minutes of air and an under layer of dark chocolate that is ever so slight. This is really a very nice wine and especially for $14. It is balanced through out and delicious! This is a wine worth hunting down. Raise a glass!
