Closerie du Pelan - VDF Rouge 2000
. This one was made down the road from Chateau Le Puy, from vines in the same soils, hailing from one of the greatest vintages of all time. Vibrant red fruit, perfectly integrated oak, savory mineral elements, simply gorgeous. From importer Neal Rosenthal: “Here, then, is the old, true, haunting style of Bordeaux that made the region famous, yet which is rare to encounter these days.” Stock up, they don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
