Chateau Montet Bordeaux Sauvignon '06 (UPDATED)

Country: France
Thoughts: On a lazy Saturday afternoon with a clean palette, I dove into the Chateau Montet. My nose worked just fine in the previous try; the bouquet remained reminiscent of mellon with hints of canteloupe and vanilla. The taste was worth the wait. After getting over the initial shock of dryness (which I attribute t0 not eating or drinking anything in some time). The mellon, prominent in the nose, took over during the second sip and didn't let up, though the balance between dry and mellon seemed to fluctuate - I found that kinda cool. The finish was clean and crisp and left me wanting more. Very drinkable and very enjoyable.
Do-over? Certainly
Final Grade: A-
