2005 Cameron Hughes, Lot 54 Puissequin Saint Emilion
CHWine - I was elated when I saw three labels of the Lot Series at Grocery Outlet. When I ran home to open the Lot 54 to taste it, I was very disappointed in its showing. It was flat and hot on the palate. Something was wrong with its development. I knew that Cameron only picks the best stuff; so I corked it and put it in the pantry until the next day. Twenty-four hours later, I tasted it again and there was a bit of fruit showing and was a drinkable everyday wine to have with food. For $6 bucks it is a fair wine but needs to open up and drink it the next day.
