Château Haut-Maillet: Bordeaux 2003

Château Haut-Maillet: Bordeaux 2003

This Bordeaux from the Pomerol appellation of France contains subtle notes of earthiness that make this Château Haut-Maillet wine distinct from others of the Bordeaux region.

After decanting for 10 minutes, the nose was very light with the scent of wet grass and berry. The palate brought raspberry, smokey oak and earthiness of wet soil. The finish was short with a smokey oak note. This is a light-bodied wine as with most Bordeauxs. The acid element was soft with medium tannins that all complimented the palate. Overall, at this stage, the wine seemed a bit neutral though. But as the bottle opened, over another 20 minutes, it gained strength in the palate. There is a very rich, distinctive earth note that I would describe like moist clay, both flavorful and mineral like in quality. This clay element along with the ever strengthening fruit base of raspberry and cherry results in a very good selection. Cheers!
