France → Château-Grillet
ryansnyder reviewed Château Grillet 2000 on March 19, 2006
Our tasting panel went back to this wine 6 times in a span of 4 hours and each time it tasted exceedingly unique. The melon and orange zest backbone shifts into nut, pepper, cheese and calcareous notes. A good, but given the hype rather disappointing display from the French monopole -- the flavors were there but just didn't come together. Drink up because the fruits are about on their last leg.
