Chateau Cambon la Pelouse 2003

Chateau Cambon la Pelouse 2003
Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux, France
Retail $20

The Wooden Guys would give it two thumbs up, if they had thumbs.

Night One

Like several for the moderately-priced bottles of '03 Bordeaux I have opened recently, this is coming to life, perhaps even peaking now. A year ago it was dead, but now it is showing a pleasant balance of fruit, blackberry and some raspberry, and more aged flavors of violets and cigar box. Tannins are soft and smooth. This has matured into a very pleasant bottle of wine at a bargain price, drinking at its peak right now. highly recommended as a bargain introduction to a great year for Bordeaux.

Night Two

A lot of the fruit is gone. Some minerality is showing through. Overall, though, it lacks the complexity of Night One. This is not a wine to hold a lot longer. Drink it now and enjoy it.

Discovering your site, fun initiative. I've seen this type of fruit disappearing in other 03.

That's great I enjoy a flavored wine. I want to try it in my home bar.

I really like the idea behind this blog. Waiting to review wine over a two day period is an excellent idea.
Thanks for the insight and the great posts.
