2000 Chateau Latour-Martillac Grand Cru Classe De Graves

Yesterday, I pulled this Grand Vin de Bordeaux from the cellar to enjoy with our Sunday lunch.
I almost always worry, just a little, that a wine might not have matured well, however, as it turned out I had no reason to be concerned.
Although this wine can be cellared for many more years, it is aging nicely.
Pouring the first glass, I took in the robust, earthy, leathery aroma. Perfect while I sat outside watching the orange leaves fall from the trees. The wine is smooth, with medium berry notes and delicate tannins in its finish. Well worth the wait.
