Chateau Coucy 2002 wine review by (PB)

Hailing from the Montagne Saint-Emilion of Bordeaux this 7 year old wine was $13 so I grabbed the last two on the shelf. It presents with a deep garnet hue and bouquet that is quite nice with gentle tobacco and lighter, dark berry aromas.

Palate--White pepper initial impression with light berry and dried cherry fruit. Tannins are still a bit immature giving it a little chewy finish. But at the price, it's a decent example of an inexpensive, right-bank, Bordeaux. Raise a glass.

Excellent value- the tannins are still very strong, so definitely let this wine breathe for an hour or two before drinking. Classic bordeaux nose, currant and blackberry mixed with soil and earth.
