2005 Chateau Forcas Dupre: Smooth, nothing spectacular.

sept. 25ish, 2010: we had this 2005 chateau forcas dupre with paupiettes de veau (thin veal wrapped in bacon and containing ground-up sweet breads). it was 13 percent alcohol, a listrac-medoc. some red-fruited sweetness, smooth, rough by french standards (but nowhere near a chilean malbec), good to try but nothing spectacular. greg said this wine has gotten better the more it's aired out, with a slight barnyard flavor, smooth.
