Always on the lookout for a bargain Bordeaux with good bones (structure). Tried this last week: 2001 Ch. Jonqueyres; AOC: Bordeaux Superior; Importer: Import! Wines, Inc. of Madison, WI.
Day 1: Delightfully classic claret nose with complex and restrained flavors to match. Great balance between structure and fruit. Resolved tannins. Definitely a merlot-driven blend. I recall somewhere that the producer is a right-banker from Cotes de Blaye.
Day 2: Fruit really moving forward at this tasting, but still a nice enough claret example.
Day 3: Very fruity, but something volatile emerging.
Day 4: Drain cleaner.
Buy again? Maybe, if it could be downed in a day. FYI. the 2000 of this wine was crackin' good, though I did run in to two corked bottles in a case.
