Chateau Haut Sociondo 2000 Premiere Cotes de Blaye ($10.99)
Clear garnet, with ripe berry aromas and a hint of spice. Tart and fresh, on the light side for a Bordeaux, but good fruit-acid balance makes for a pleasant wine that goes well with food. US Importer: William Grant & Sons Inc., NYC. (Aug 4, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: A natural with roast chicken.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
