Chateau Daillan Bordeaux Superieur 2000

With a light leather aroma, this deep ruby red wine is very thin to taste and has a reasonable amount of tannins and dark berry and light leather characteristics although it’s nothing special.

Over time the wine seemed to fill out more and it didn’t taste as thin.

We found the wine went well with balsamic-infused mushrooms, however with lamb it was too overpowering and the acid of the wine was too dominant.

Reasonable now and should keep for a number of years although with it not being a “Wow this is great wine”, I’m not convinced extra cellaring will bring out anything.
