Château Hortevie Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2004

Member Review by ttutony:

Decanted for 30 minutes before serving. A nicely defined nose with dark fruit, cedar, earth, and leather. The strength of the nose was not overpowering but the individual aromas were still distinguishable. Once in the mouth this wine showed its stuff. Black currant and plum fruit were most prominant with an exceptional balance on the palate. A hint of caramelized-type flavors emerged in my second glass, maybe a coffee or chocolate hint. Medium body with very supple tannins. Very smooth, elegant structure. The finish went on for at least a minute. This was a very enjoyable experience.

Followed ttutony's advice and decanted for roughly half an hour. A sophisticated, serious wine to be sure. The finish goes and goes. A gem, obscured by the bluster of the 2005s.
