Chateau Haut-Bages Monpelou 2007

Though from Pauillac, this wine is not the grandest label, nor the grandest year.  And unfortunately that about sums it up.  Young looking, with a ruby colour, expect a pungent aroma of cherries, spice and cedar.  The palate is disappointing.  Short length, a touch dilute, low tannins, medium acidity and slightly tart plums are evident.  This wine bears more than a passing resemblance to a simple AOC Bordeaux, and is another reason to approach the 2007s with caution.  79 points.
