2014 Chateau Clauzet

Another one from my Bordeaux futures order. Ink dark in color with a mild dark cherry nose and some oak. On the mid palate the wine displays some solid rich black cherry notes to match the nose along with some lovely mocha. On the medium length finish the wine displays some solid tannins and vibrant acidity. It’s a beautiful rich bold wine with lots of aging potential. I paired it with rack of lamb and it was a piece of yummy. I would give it an solid 90+

From the LCBO web site:
CLAUZET RP 89-91 WE 91-93 430306 750 $29
CLAUZET Cellar Starter 430306 (XD) 750mL
TASTING NOTE: Dominated by strong Cabernet tannins, this is still a fruity wine with swathes of black currant. The fresh acidity adequately balances the young wood and bitter chocolate finish. Score: 91-93 (WE)
