WTN: Wood flattens fruit

by David M. Bueker » Thu May 18, 2006 8:17 am

2000 Chateau Fombrauge (St. Emilion) - Overpowering pine and mint on the nose. Smelled like a mint julep made from Retsina. No fruit on the palate at all. Likely a faulty bottle, though the pine/mint notes are worrisome.

1995 Cuilleron St. Joseph l'Amerybelle - Meat and wood on the nose. On the palate it's all drying, astringent wood. No fruit left here.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
