Chateau L’Argenteyre Medoc 2009

Chateau L’Argenteyre Medoc 2009 (from Mayfair Wine, $16.99)

Deep purple color with a nose of violet, barnyard, and black fruit. In the mouth, spicy pepper, black plum and blackberry dominate with some green vegetation upfront. Notes of spice box, mushroom, potting soil, stone and oak. Tight tannins with a lingering finish push some flavors to expand upwards through the back palate. Tasted over four days with steak, pasta, strong cheeses. Pairs easily and nicely, is better with food, and I preferred this wine slightly chilled to reduce the funk and allow the tannins a little more bite; you might prefer otherwise.


à votre santé!
