Off is on.
Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot, St.-Emilion, 2004.
If there's one thing I like Bordeaux it's an off vintage! I am not a fan of the vintages that everyone else loves, mostly because I drink young wine and these lesser years are less expensive and more drinkable when young.
This was a tasty one - lots of soft plummy fruit (hello Merlot!) and soft integrated tannins. Nothing green or under ripe about this wine. Muy delish and I am not Bordeaux lover, Lover.
Ok?? I think we got this at the Wine House for around $30, but I have to check with Peter on that, will get back to you.
