Augey 2007 Bordeaux
This is a subtle wine with a lot of flavor, which may be a contradiction of sorts. It’s full of fruit–the fruitiest wine I’ve had in a while, truth be told. It’s also pretty thick. I like the simple berry goodness; there’s a smorgasbord of blackberry, raspberry, and strawberry all begging for your attention. The amount of oak is just right for me; it’s enough that you have to consider if a toothpick may have fallen in the wine but not too much that I actually consider wood to be a flavor component. There’s also a hint of vanilla.
It’s a good, pleasant, easy-to-drink wine. For Bordeauxs, it’s one of my favorites so far. I think that means I need to try more Bordeauxs.
