Well dear reader, our tour of France continues with yet another red (no matter how much I'll like certain whites, I'll always be a red fan), this time a 2005 (at least that's what the website says, I've since thrown out the bottle and receipt - whoops!) called Laplace Madiran.

The gold label is pretty spiffy, but the magic pretty much ends there for this wine, at least for these taste buds. (No, I did not taste the label, I'm just saying, work with me here!)

Naturally corked (yay), the familiar deep, rich red splashes into the glass and says "hello" to the nose in a very strong fashion.

This wine can go down smooth, but is bodied quite heavily and fully.

It is a definite dry red whose aftertaste is heavy and lingers.

I must not have picked up any strong notes of taste, because, well, I didn't write any down at the time! I guess this was just a good, basic red, nothing terribly to write home about I suppose, but still not bad.

**3/4 out of 4

Purchased from a Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) store for C$12.60 (US$11.54).
