Wine for Asia 2006 : The Great Bordeaux 2002 Tasting by The Wine Review A3-01


The personal highlight of Wine for Asia this year was the Great Bordeaux 2002 Tasting organized by The Wine Review at A3-01. Ch’ng Poh Tiong was there for a short while to talk to the visitors as well on the 25 wines from the 2002 Bordeaux vintage. The Wine Review had obtained these bottles from the Chateaus directly. Personally I feel that these French Wines from Bordeaux still outclass any of the wines present at the exhibition. The complexity, finesse and length of balance silky tannins still make Bordeaux wines the most sought after in the World markets.

Chateau Rauzan-segla Margaux 2002 Grand Cru (2nd Growth)

Smell : Good nose of blackcurrents, raspberry and flora

Taste : Smooth easy-drinking yet good structure of tannins at the end of the palate.

After-Taste : Shorter length of tannins, but still quite substantial.

Chateau La Fleur Saint Emillion Grand Cru 2002

Smell : Rather closed but raspberry scent and a little rose do come through.

Taste : Fruity with raspberry taste and a little cedar.

After-Taste : Significant length with well-built tannin structure.

Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac 2002 Grand Vin Grand Cru Classe

Smell : Ripened cherries with a little smokiness.

Taste : Cherry, raspberries which disappears at the end.

After-Taste : Excellent finish of smooth tannins.

Some more reviews in the upcoming entries…appreciate your patience…
