Wine Entry : Chateau Teyssier Bordeaux 2002 (French)


J.Lim brought this bottle over to our house, believed she bought it from DFS. I had put it into the fridge for a couples of weeks already, so drunk it cold which dampened it’s aromas. In the glass, it was a medium, maroon colour.

Smell : Cherry, raspberry aroma with pine/oak/flora scents

Taste : Less fruity than Aussie or New World wines, liquorish in character, medium bodies with soft tannins.

After-taste : Slight spice and oaky finish

Description at back of bottle :
The origin of this chateau goes back to the 11th and 12th centuries. In the middle ages monks began to plant their vines here. Located in the village of Blasimon, 35 km east of ordeaux, the vineyar is superbly positioned around the chateau. With a deep ruby red colour, it release great aromatic richness in which the blackcurrent notes standout. It is medium bodied ample and well-rounded in the mouth with wonderfully mellow tannins. In the finish it demonstrates suppleness and good length. In total 88,710 bottles are available. Blend for the vintage includes 58% merlot, 32% cabernet franc, 10% cabernet sauvignon.
