Default TN: Surprising minor Bordeaux, and an 05 Beaujolais

So Friday had a couple friends/colleagues drop by (signing forms), and then grilled some sausage and sauteed some spinach. Tried 2 wines that I recently ran across that I didn’t necessarily plan on aging this long (and both were relevant to recent interwebz discussions)

2005 JP Brun/Terres Dorees “L’Ancien” Beaujolais
Real cork. Tight at first, with some light reductive notes. After about an hour it's drinking well. Still some tannin, deep black cherry fruit with damp soil and herb notes. Midbodied, quite nice. B+

2000 Larose Trintaudon (Haut-Medoc)
No idea where this came from. Not something I buy, much less age. My guess it was a gift or someone bought it to a big party -but why did I put it in a cellar box rather than a drink soon box? What a surprise. Resolved tannins, moderate black currant and plum fruit, some hints of leather. Not very long, but a perfectly pleasant mature claret. B/B-

Saturday I wasn’t going to drink as I needed to make a late trip to airport, grilled a tuna steak and corn while I did some work. But Betsy’s flight to Atlanta got diverted to Spartanburg, when it became clear she wasn’t going to make it to LGA I had a glass of each of the reds. The Ancien had become a bit volatile and oxidized overnight, but the Larose Trintaudon actually held well. Whoddathunk?

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.

Is the Larose Trintaudon a Cordier wine?
