WTN: 2001 Grand Veneur " Les Origines"

Postby Jim Grow » Wed Sep 20, 2006 10:08 pm

Tasted several years ago, I thought this wine was very tight and no where near ready to drink. Tonight it was very approachable with semi-smooth tannins and nice spicey raspberry and light plum flavors but with lots of mellow tannins to add structure given an hour to breath. I'll let the other 2 bottles rest for a few years if I can keep my hands off of them. Great aging potential here!
