Chateau De Chambrun

by Hans » Wed Apr 12, 2006 1:29 pm

Hello, I bought a bottel of Chateau De Chambrun, 2001 from Pomerol. In Bordeaux, at the store Cousin & Compagnie for a 1 year ago. And now I wonder if it some have drunk it? How long do you think I would wait to open it?

Cheers ,Hans

Hi,

I don't know this vintage, but I do know the 98 and 00.
This is one of the best of Lalande de Pomerol.
Your 2001 is probably too young, but it would by no means be a crime to drink it now.
In light of the vintage and the château profile, I'd estimate its peak at 2010-2012.

Best regards,
Alex R.

Hans, I had a 99 recently. Good wine and quite drinkable with an hour or two of decanting, but it's a big baby and needs a lot more time to develop some more interesting secondary flavors. Haven't had an 01 but if you don't mind killing babies, as Alex said, many of the 01's are drinking quite nicely right now.
