2000 Chateau de Lamarque, Haut-Medoc, France


Now this is a complete bargain
at around £20 a bottle. I had it at my local, Planet of the Grapes in London's Leadenhall market, recently.

One reviewer says it is: "Very aromatic, with plum, tobacco and coffee aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, chewy and rich, with lots of ripe tannins and a long, smoky finish".

I'm not sure I could be that eloquent about it, but we thought it was superb.

I can't recall the last time I saw a 2000 Cru Bourgeois at this price. Pick some up.
