Wine for Asia 2006 : Great 2002 Bordeaux Tasting by The Wine Review

Here is the final installment of the reds for the 2002 Bordeaux Tasting.
The tasting notes are a little bit shorter, but that was the best I could manage after going through so many wines at the WFA 2006. Nose and Palate fatigue in a pleasurable manner :)

Chateau Brown Grand Vin de Graves 2002

Smell : Some nutty and fruit of blackcurrents and plums.

Taste : Some fruit but not prolific, mainly constituent of tannins and oak.

After-Taste : Short compared to the others available.

Chateau Beychevelle Grand Vin 2002

Smell : Nose of oak, dark cherries and blackcurrents.

Taste : Smooth, minimal fruit, primarily oak and wood.

After-Taste : Good structure of tannins but of a medium length.

Chateau Labegurce Margaux 2002

Smell : Nose a little closed, but blackcurrents and plums still exist.

Taste : Blackcurrent, plum fruits with fair amounts of oak, vanilla on a tannic structure.

After-Taste : Medium finish of tannins and oak.
