Château La Croix St. Georges St. Georges Saint Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$115

I kept a bottle of this wine open for 10 days before it began to reveal some oxidation. The color is an inky blue/purple. The nose, at first reticent, offers up aromas of blackberry liqueur intermixed with creme de cassis, melted road tar, sweet licorice, and a hint of smoky new oak. Full-bodied, with an unctuous texture, tremendous purity, and relatively high tannin (which is obscured by massive concentration and thickness), this superb 2000 represents a great achievement for a wine from this vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020+. Robert Parker
