Don’t Sleep on Bordeaux!

Once again, I am realizing how great these wines are. I drank a 1999 Calon-Segur and it was stunning. So elegant and silky; I think the 1999 vintage is drinking great right now and a bargain compared to the 2000s. (Though having drank some mind-blowing 2000s, I wouldn’t hesitate to pay extra). The Calon-Segur went through many phases, from pretty and elegant, to mineral/pencil lead, and plush with fruit and a bit of tannin. What an incredible wine!
