Château Pipeau Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2003

Member Review by WineborkDotCom:

A straight-ahead, plump, flavorful Bordeaux that's showing well at age 7 (tasted July 2010). In our recent tasting, this deep purple wine evolved considerably over time. When first opened it was hard to identify as a Bordeaux - it had lots of chocolate and earthy tones and a chunky texture on top of funky Carignan-like fruit. But over time it became much more classic, as cassis and cherry notes took over. The earthiness was still there, however, along with a distinct smoking oak component. Satisfying Bordeaux that, even in current vintages, is reasonably priced.
