Not exactly Louvre-worthy


But a thing of beauty, nonetheless. This 2003 Bordeaux is from the M├ędoc appellation, and as we wine snobs like to say, it was freaking delicious. It was fruity, and chocolatey, with none of those "pencil shavings" or "peat" flavors that are sometimes attributed to wine. The last taste I want in my mouth when I'm sipping a fine wine is "manure nugget".

Come to think of it, that's the last taste I want in my mouth. Period.

I don't know what you're talking about I love to find gritty manure in my wine, esp if it sticks to the side of the glass, then you know the manure is well aged!
