TN: under $20 Pomerol


Last night I grilled chicken breast that had marinated in a sweet soy sauce/garlic/oil mixture, served with broccolini and the 2006 Ch. de Sales (Pomerol). Medium bodied, red plum fruit, some fine tannins, good acidity for a Right Banker. Some earth and coffee, pleasant wine, not bad for $19. Enough structure a few years might do some good. Not a great match with meal, but I tried. B
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
