Poupille, 2003, Cotes de Castillon, Bordeaux

Poupille, 2003, Cotes de Castillon, Bordeaux

This red is made with 100% merlot so it's pretty powerful. Very attractive dark red colour, almost blood red. Pretty dense with decent legs. Intense nose of dark berries, plum and spice, with a tinge of earthy mushroom/leather scent. Need decanting for at least an hour. Medium to full body. Enjoyable finishing as it tastes luscious in the mouth. Still has a good amount of acid. Tannins have rounded. Taste of typical old French wine. This is definitely a value for money wine. You can't go wrong with this red! Highly recommended at this price!
