Chateau Cote Montpezat 2009

In the glass, Chateau Cote Montpezat is deep, dusty red, opaque in the middle, brick at the edges. Not surprising, since it already wearing 9 years of age. Right from the bottle, upon swirling, the nose is gamey and chewy, with a vegetable medley mixed in - sort of a beefy stew. On the palate, the vegetables come through first - a fairly flat mid-palate bringing broccoli and cauliflower, with little hints of fruit around the edges. Modest finish shows a touch of acid and tannin.

  1. I bought a case of this from Wine.com and honestly it was accidental or I might have been a bit tired or super indulged in wine, but amazingly I am developing a love for French wine after tasting this awesome vintage
