2012 Chateau Clos Moulin Pontet Bordeaux Superior
No crazy write-ups here, just one heck of a Bordeaux! I have been searching, for what seems like forever, for the best value Bordeaux I can find. I have finally found it. It's been a long road. Inexpensive Bordeaux can,frankly, really suck. Too lean, too tannic, boring, no Bordeaux "Character". When I am looking for a bordeaux, i want ripe fruit, i want mouthfeel, i want that gravel soil to come through on the nose, I want that peppery, gravelly aroma that makes a Bordeaux a Bordeaux. I want velvety tannins and a finish that lasts. These are things you normally only find in higher end Bordeaux, but I have finally found the "grail"! If you love Bordeaux, and you love a deal, back up the truck, this one's for you....
