Review: *** $$ Chateau Plain-Point, Fronsac, Bordeaux, France, 2005

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Chateau Plain-Point.

Original tasting and review : This is Chateau Plain-Point, Fronsac, Bordeaux, France, 2005, finished at 14% alcohol and first sampled a full decade from vintage date, in May, 2015.

In the glass:  Medium deep brick.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows classic old world fruit, with plenty of twigs.  From the aroma, seems like this will be bring, tangy and perhaps bold too.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact balanced with medium deep fruit, showing some strawberry along with the leafy, twiggy hints that appeared in the nose.  Clean finish, plenty of acids still apparent, seems ready as a wine to accompany a mild-mannered classic red wine.

In summary: Overall, rates a perfectly solid three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Not a bad sign after a decade of age at such a price point!
