Puisseguin Saint-Émilion Cabernet Franc Merlot 2017

From Chambers 2017 on 9/25/20. Decanted at 55’ but needs to be cooler. Cedar and alcohol even in a real, open Bordeaux style glass. Opens fast and softens. Chocolate for sure. Blackberry. Not usually a fan of pure cab franc, but this unfolds beautifully. Keep moving the rating up, every five minutes. — 2 months ago

Croix de Beausejour Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Creme brûlée is dominant. There’s a beautiful lilt on the tongue. It’s a little darker than I expect. The nose and flavor are heavenly. Vanilla, nutmeg, creme, butter, smooooooooooooth tannins, all create a wonderful playtime in the mouth. 2015 is a brilliant wine you need to buy and drink immediately. — 2 years ago

Pentimento Montagne-St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Tried this again, 1st bottle was a dud! Made by Michele d'Aprix, an American woman who studied organic chemistry in college and ended up in Bordeaux. Chemical equation on the label is the equation for calcareous clay soil in the right bank of Bordeaux giving a unique character. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits and notes of cedar and spice. Palate shows flavors of blackberry & cherry with tobacco and pepper spice. Drying tannins, medium+ finish, nice balance ending with earthy herbs & black pepper notes. — 2 months ago

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

A. R.
9.2

Well aged and classic BDX. On the nose, rose hips, dusty red fruit and forest. In the mouth, red fruit, dried flowers and noticeable secondary flavor characteristics. Still some tannin left, even after 2 hours in a decanter. Medium-long finish. I don’t think you need (or should) wait much longer for this one. — 7 months ago

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Strong oak notes for the first hour or so after opening but softened shortly thereafter. Really opulent and silky smooth...great with a rich and savory meal. Merlot done right! — a year ago

Nicolas Thienpont

Chateau La Prade Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Nicolas Thienpont is a great winemaker at 3 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classés Beauséjour HDL, Pavie Macquin and Larcis Ducasse +Grand Cru Classé Berliquet + a few estates in the Côtes de Bordeaux). This Côtes de Francs is probably the most humble in his stable, but it's a very serious wine. A blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, it features a dark red colour colour with a purplish rim, a complex nose with blueberry and strawberry fruit, flowers and cocoa powder. The fruit is packed in a tight ripe tannic structure, with balancing acidity and serious length. I would recommend to give this overachiever a few years of bottle age. Abv. 14,5%. Great value at 12,90 euro. — 2 months ago

Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.6

The 2017 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is powerful and backward, with huge tannins wrapped around a core of black cherry, smoke, charcoal, licorice, blackberry jam and graphite. Exotic and rich in the glass, the 2017 needs time to soften, but it is immensely promising, not to mention utterly captivating. Tasted three times. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2020)
