  • 2000 Château La Couspaude – France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru (5/7/2018)
    WIML93

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about 90 minutes.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Lovely aged Bordeaux nose of saddle leather, cigar box, plums and mixed dark fruit. Juicy flavors of black berries, plums and Bing cherries on the medium to long finish. Bright to tangy acidity, firm tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold but I’d lean toward drink. Unlikely to improve and in about as good a spot as one could ask right now. (93 points)
