Château Hourbanon 2003, Ac Médoc, Cru Bourgeois
Ten years old, I think this wine is in its prime! So we opened it and decanted for at least an hour.
I actually reviewed this wine last year. I think after a year it just got better!
The wine became more softer, more balanced. More pronounced leather aromas, cedar, dried berries.
Aromas don't jump out of the glass, they flow gently opening up layer after layer, what this wine has to offer.
Finish is long and very pleasant.
This wine is good by itself, but asking for meat. But not very heavy dish, not very complicated. Something like simple piece of good prosciutto will do.
