Wines Drank - Bordeaux 2006

After a busy wine weekend, this wine stood out as one worth chatting about:

Château Haut Selve Réserve 2006




The 2006 vintage is one of my favourites of the decade. What's that you say? 2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2009, 2010 didn't do it for you? To be honest, they all have their charm, but 2006 was truly a Claret drinkers' year, and the Haut Selve represents a perfect example of why the 2006s should not be overlooked. Still a pup, this wine features black plum skin, spice, wood, marshmallow root, crushed black currant, and an epic tannic structure and firm acidity that will welcome this wine into the 2020s with ease. At $21.60 on the Vintages Bin End sale, you will not find better if you tried. 90+ Points.
