2005 Chateau Fourreau

I picked up a couple of bottles of Chateau Fourreau after reading a very positive Hubrecht Duijker review. The producer of this wine is a family-run winery located, south of St. Emilion, in Pujols. The wine is 100% merlot-based from the 2005 vintage which was very favourable in Bordeaux.

Here is my basic tasting note:

Colour: dense deep red/purple in colour.

Nose: black fruits: currents and black berries.

Palate: same black current. lovely and smooth. good mouth feel. tannins are well integrated, although slightly hard at this stage.

Finish: nice finish, albeit slightly short.

Conclusion: very good qpr. i also suspect that it has enough in it to last for a few years. a great daily drink.
