Wine Entry : Chateau Le Merle 2001 (French)


C.K got this bottle of Saint Emilion Grand Cru from the Carrefour wine fair previously with me. Remembered it was at a really good deal approx S$28. The wine exhibited a healthy garnet red colour.

Smell: Predominantly alcoholic cherry berries nose with some sea salt and woody oak.

Taste : Discrete on the fruit, smooth and woody which transforms to a good structure tannin finish.

After taste : Commendable length of tannins which mellow off slowly. Scents of avocado at the end.
