2004 Chateau Tour Prignac
Travelled to the UK this weekend. On the way I saw a special in one of the duty-free shops. Chateau Tour Prignac 2004 two for the price of one. Now 2004 having been built up as a pretty decent vintage for Bordeaux, I picked up a couple of bottles.
Coming from the Medoc region (left bank Bordeaux) the wine is a blend of 50% merlot and 50% cabernet sauvignon. Here is my tasting note:
Colour: dense red in colour. colour shows this wine is still very young.
Nose: lovely elegant nose. primarily black currents and cassis, with some hints of mint and oak.
Palate: plenty of ripe black fruits much in the same vein as the nose. soft, smooth tannins give this wine good structure.
Finish: good length on the finish.
Conclusion: good qpr as the last one i reviewed. should be enough in this wine to last at least a few years.
