2000 La Rose Metairie Haut Medoc[Haut-Medoc]
[Blend/Cuvee - Other]
Posted by Mike P. on 2018-02-04 18:49:03 [Show TN in Text Format]
Chateau/Producer:La Rose Metairie
Wine Name:Haut Medoc
Country:France
State:Haut Medoc
AOC:Haut Medoc
Region:Haut Medoc
Wine Score:77
Notes:This is one of the lesser wines of the Bordeaux region, but from the highly-regarded 2000 vintage. Unfortunately, while the wine maintains quite a bit of color and richness in appearance, there are not many tannins left and it has gone past its prime and is slightly oxidized.

2013 Francis Coppola Directors Cabernet Sauvignon[Sonoma Valley]
[Cabernet Sauvignon]

Chateau/Producer:Francis Coppola
Wine Name:Directors Cabernet Sauvignon
Country:USA
State:CA

Notes:Beet red or dark, with limited legs, nose of astringent traces of ink. The big problem with this wine is the lack of tannins and structure. Good quality grapes without any substance behind them is a waste.

2000 Chateau Malescasse [Haut-Medoc]
[Bordeaux/Meritage-style blend]
Posted by Mike P. on 2015-07-02 20:39:32 [Show TN in Text Format]
Chateau/Producer:Chateau Malescasse
Country:France
AOC:Haut-Medoc
Region:Haut Medoc
Wine Score:87
Notes:Color is beet red with amber edges, initial nose of leather, watermelon rind, rust, minerals, diaper, giving way to red currants and violets. Medium to light-bodied. Most of the tannins have given way to a pungent and fruity wine that is most likely past its prime right now... it's possible with more aging something else may come out of it. There is some structure there but it's hiding. Some finish too. This might be a wine I'd wished I'd opened in another 20 years.
