Wine tasting note: 1996 Beau-Site Sainte Estephe

1996 Beau-Site Sainte Estephe

3rd Apr 1999 GBP11 Bordeaux Table Red

Quite hard and green on opening - retasted after 3 hours.
Deep, even, plummy red - viscous.
Closed on the nose with some plum and leaf aromas and a hint of oak.
Medium bodied and dry with firm tannins, good acidity, plummy fruit and lots of oak.
Good concentration and length.
Good value, but needs 5 yo 10 years.
