Château Coulonge Daniel & Nicolas Roux, Vign.-Récolt. 2005
A.C., Bordeaux, France
Vintages Wine Panel: Winner of a Gold Medal at the Concours Général Agricole 2006 in Paris. Ready-to-drink 2005 Bordeaux, featuring aromas of blackberry, blueberry, plum, vanilla, mocha and a mild toastiness. Dry, lush, round and ripe. This is almost New World in style. My note: An absolute steal for Bordeaux! This rustic charmer comes fightin’ out of the bottle with black cherries, cedar and smoke. Needs decanting for 1-2 hours because of its tannins but it’s incredibly tasty, well-structured and you can’t mistake the classic Bordeaux signature. Food pairings: barbecued back ribs, steaks. Alcohol: 12.5%  Sweetness: Dry  750 ml  Price: $15.95 Score: 88/100
