Wine tasting note: 1996 Cantenac Brown Bordeaux

1996 Cantenac Brown Bordeaux

21st Apr 1999 GBP19 Bordeaux Table Red

Opaque purple/red with some fading at rim.
Lovely, developed, perfumed, meaty, vegetal nose of soft plum and berry fruit, with some spicy, minty notes.
Full bodied and opulent with a rounded texture and spicy, sweet plum fruit.
Tangy acidity, creamy oak and leather carry through onto a long finish.
Lovely core of fruit and excellent balance.
Superb! Excellent now with food, but really should be hoarded for another 10 years.
