Chateau Plaisance    Blended Red Mike Taylor Very good  2000  $15.00
With the 2000 vintage, Bordeaux wines have received many accolades. Agreeably, it was an outstanding vintage. Chateau Plaisance is from the Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux appellation, which runs along the Garonne River opposite Graves. From this appellation you generally get decent quality as well as good value.

Chateau Plaisance's 2000 vintage shows a dark ruby core that fades to a shade of mahogany along the rim. The nose finds aromas of black currants, licorice and stewed rhubarb. In the mouth, the wine has powdery tannins and lively acidity and holds a constant intensity. The wine is balanced with a pleasant supple consistency. Overall, this is a good wine that's developing and will continue to do so for a few more years.
