Wine Exhibition : Wine For Asia 2007 (Part III)

The next Quartet…

Chateau Phelan Segur 2003 (French)

My personal view is that this was the best of the range of wines. Seemingly odd that this wine also out-weighed the super seconds.

Smell :Fierce over-riped fruits with scented roses.

Taste : Well ripen fruits of berries and warm alcohol. Nicely balance and round. Inviting for a second sip.

After-taste : Well-structured tannins with a length that was respectable for a Grand Cru. Impressive.

Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2003 (French)

Smell : A little unpleasant with sulphides and acetone. Fairly warm with the alcohol.

Taste : Fruity round and balanced but with a slight unpleasant acetone layer.

After-taste : Smooth silky tannins with a medium length.

Chateau Beychevelle 2003 (French)

Smell : Nice warm blackcurrent fruits.

Taste : Round and fruity raspberry sweetness. Light and wispy in nature without intensity.

After-taste : Nothing to crow about, uncomplicated length.

Chateau Brane-Cantenac 2003 (French)

Smell : Alcohol, warm blackcurrent with mineral and stones.

Taste : Well-balanced, light cherry, blackcurrent fruits. Somewhat sweetish.

After-taste : Unimpressive, quick and interrupted.
