Wine Entry : Lamothe Bergeron 2003 (French)


This was a bottle of wine I picked up at the previous Carrefour Wine fair. It is interesting in the sense that we have a local wine community website "the Local Nose" that recommended it. Therefore, I thought it would be really exciting to taste a wine that was recommended by the Singapore Wine experts. My comments are that they have done a fairly decent job in recommending a wine that was reasonably priced @ S$28.90 and pleasant to drink.

Smell : Blackcurrent aromas, but muted

Taste : Smooth and easy, not fruit driven ripness as expected from a 2003. Classic bordeaux.

After taste : Structured tannins that would have appreciated some age to them.

Description at back of bottle : The engraving featured on the label is taken from the book "Bordeaux et ses vins" published by Editions Feret in 1898. It depicts the chateau as it was constructed in 1868.

The wine has the rich, dark, sensual taste of very mature fruit. It balances classical elegance and an all consuming sensuality, doubtless becuase it is equal parts of Cabernet and Merlot.
