The 2000 Chateau Moulin Pey-Labrie hails from the Canon Fronsac Appelation in Bordeaux, which seems to be gaining in stature as prices for the better-known appelations skyrocket. This wine was a suggestion from Brooklynguy, and I was fortunate to find the 2000 vintage available locally.
Nice scents of raspberry and oak, backed up by attractive vegetal (see Fermentation for a neat discussion) and flinty aromas. Classic Bordeaux. Medium-bodied with velvety tannins, good fruit and harmonius balance. An absolute pleasure to have a Bordeaux as it is hitting its stride, and one that paired so nicely with our roast beast, and a decent price for a well-made, aged, Bordeaux.
Merlot, with some Cab Sauv. and Cab. Franc
