2000 Chateau Pipeau St. Emilion Grand Cru (Bordeaux)

Another find for $20 and WOW! I love this wine!

This dark colored St. Emilion is still tannic so it really grips your tongue on first taste. Loads of fruit. Full bodies and very aromatic with floral violet notes along with blackberry, anise, and cedar. The blackberry also comes through on the palate along with a leathery texture. Super long finish.

This wine has so much tannin right now that I would expect it to develop nicely in the bottle and will probably be fantastic in another 5+ years. If drinking now, decant this wine for at least a couple hours beforehand.
