Château les Tuileries Bordeaux (2008)

It is nearly Christmas. We are celebrating tonight because today was my last day of work until after the new year (okay, when don’t we celebrate?). I have a fresh chicken roasting in the oven. Trigger is cuddling on the chair with me. Tom is expostulating  his theories, which is fascinating to me. . .he always has intelligent and thoughtful theories on life.

I like this Château les Tuileries Bordeaux 2008 very much. The nose is earthy with some cranberries. The taste is a good balance of fruit and oak with husky tannins.

I purchased this wine from a mail offer that I received — 12 bottles of specially selected reds — and this is a keeper.

Tom: This Château les Tuileries Bordeaux 2008 comes across as very young, but is still very pleasant. It’s surprisingly light-bodied and quite soft, not the stereotype of the big bold Bordeaux at all. But it’s got a nice dark-fruit taste and a good dryness. Very drinkable. A nice choice for tonight.
