Review: Pezat Grand Vin de Bordeaux 2011

You may have noticed that I am a member (or Angel, as members are known) of NakedWines.com. As an Angel, I buy and review a lot of NakedWines.com wine. In addition to their NakedWines.com wines, many of the winemakers who produce wine for NakedWines.com also have other projects and private labels. They’re not Naked, but they’re made by NakedWines.com winemakers, so they’re not entirely non-Naked. I like to refer to them as “Wines Scantily Clad.”

I’ve added a “Wines Scantily Clad” category under Reviews in the menu bar. Check back for more reviews as I come across these great wines!

Pezat
From NakedWines.com’s own Jonathan Maltus, I scored his Pezat 2011 Right Bank Bordeaux for just $17. Robert Parker himself was pretty impressed with this wine:

88 pts.– Robert Parker: “From Jonathan Maltus, this is what Bordeaux is doing more and more of. It is wines such as this that will ultimately save the lesser properties from extinction. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc from a humble appellation with a great price tag, this inky/purple-colored 2011 reveals copious amounts of black fruits. Straightforward and powerful, this sleeper of the vintage will offer a serious mouthful of wine over the next 3-4 years.”

Here’s my review from Vivino:

Bright, vibrant Right Bank Bordeaux. Ruby color with red brick at the edges. Aromas of raspberry, cranberry, and plum. Flavors of plum, cherry, and smoky spice, with a hint of oak. Tannins are pronounced, with bright acidity. This wine has great aging potential. The finish is spice, leather, and licorice. Like most Old World wines, this is best with food, and paired nicely with my grilled flank steak. At $17, a very nice Bordeaux.

Purchased from Underground Cellar.
Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Thanks to Ryan O’Connell of NakedWines.com for suggesting and encouraging me to add “Wines Scantily Clad” to my blog. Check out Ryan’s blog, The Truth About Wine at https://nakedwinesdotcom.wordpress.com/.
