2007 Chateau La Garde Pessac Leognan
A property that belongs to Bordeaux negociant Dourthe and a wine coming from 2007 – quite a modest vintage for Bordeaux. A predominantly Merlot based wine.
2007 Chateau La Garde Pessac-Leognan
Deep dark red garnet color. A developed and sweet oaky nose, with ripe blackberry and plum, cocoa, cinnamon and even shades of warm forest floor. Medium bodied, very approachable, with mellow tannins, bright acidity, flavors of cocoa, black and red berries, with good minerality and a medium spicy-mineral finish. (87-88/100)
This wine is drinking very well now.
