Saturday night and it is time for a 5th Growth Bordeaux the 2001 Chateau DuTertre. This Chateau is one of the oldest on the Left Bank. A very nice well balanced wine at 17 years of age.

On the nose there is good dark fruit black cherry, blackberry, black currant, black pepper, licorice, violets and dark rich earth.

The palate the dark fruit continues with good black cherry, blackberry, black currant, black pepper, the herbal notes come through real nice, a bit of leather, and rich tilled soil.

The wine is medium to full bodied with medium acidity and medium smooth tannins that lead into a long dark fruit finish. An enjoyable Bordeaux that still has another 5 to 10 years ahead of it. Continued enjoying your weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Dense red color. The nose however is brightly open and expressive, exuberant I’m tempted to say. Bursting aromas of herbs combine with vibrant raspberry jam in a dancing frenzy, delighting the nose. Very soft and refined palate, with some density but an outstanding finesse to the feel. This 2001 shines brighter than many, utter finesse and elegance, great and ready to drink, but an hour decanting would be my suggestions; it only gets better with time.

Still fresh with some blackcurrant. Good length and complexity.

Wet leaves, coffee bean, toast on nose, elegant red fruit driven palate. Fine. Delicious. Good match for mushroom cobbler.
