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.

If you really paid $30 that's a steal, even for the off-vintage...grab some more fast!
