Tour du Haut-Moulin Chateau Tour du Haut-Moulin 1989 Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois
Purchased at least seven years ago for a now-forgotten price tag (probably in the $15 range), this wine has been stored under air-conditioned room-temperature conditions but not in a proper cellar, but it seems to have held up very well indeed, ready to drink but in no danger of going around the bend. Very dark garnet in color, it shows ripe blackcurrant fruit aromas with pleasant earthy whiffs of black coffee and licorice. Full and tart fruit flavors follow the nose, still showing abundant fruit and ample tannins. It holds up well and continues to evolve for hours in the glass. U.S. importer: Winesellers Ltd., Skokie, Ill. (July 31, 2000)

FOOD MATCH: Perfect with lamb chops pan-grilled with garlic and rosemary.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
