Wednesday Wine Committee from this past week. A fantastic hosting by @joe leatherwood . 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual. Possibly in its prime drinking window, and it is gorgeous. Everything about this screams high quality left bank Bordeaux (which is what I called it). It was beautifully perfumed with a mix of potpourri, dried black cherries, blackberries, graphite, saddle leather and herbs de Provence. Perfectly balanced on the palate with dark fruits enveloped in cedar and sweet pipe tobacco. There is a line of ripe purple fruits down the middle accompanied by dust and mocha which is just delicious.

And this is why I love Margaux. 2000 Palmer tasting perfect right now. Velvety texture, forest floor, and well-integrated red fruit. LOVE. #margaux #chateaupalmer #bordeau #sommlife #2000

Wasn't sure if I should pop this yet, but it was time to shine! Classic Bordeaux nose of spice and leather. Smooth tannins. Ready to drink now, but will likely wait at least a couple years to open my remaining bottles
