WTN: 2000 Chateau Beaumont

by David M. Bueker » Thu Sep 28, 2006 8:58 am

Grilled some burgers last night and opened a petit chateau to go with them:

Black cherry and herb aromas with a noticeable austerity. The flavors were a bit more rounded out, with better fruit definition and a mineral quality to the finish. Definite Bordeaux character, and showing only a little of the vintage ripeness, as the tannins are somewhat drying. Decent wine and good but not very good/excellent QPR. About the right speed for burgers on the grill.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
