Chateau du Bousquet 2001 wine review by (PB)

This Grand Vin De Bordeaux from the Cotes De Bourg is a medium cherry color with some age showing in its presentation. The bouquet reveals some chocolate, berry and slightly herbal notes.

The palate is subtle--classic old world wine with a touch of bitterness. Fruit is tight and needs air.

With some breathing the bouquet opens up a bit to vegetal berries. It is a bit tannic with dried cherries as primary fruit. Actually this wine is pretty decent but again definitely "old world."

This wine is also peaked and needs to be consumed now! Raise a glass quickly.
