Château Clos St. Émilion Philippe

Château Laroque

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Popped and poured. The 2019 pours a deep ruby with an opaque core; medium+ viscosity with moderate staining of the tears. On the nose, developing with black plums, black bramble fruit, purple flowers, tobacco, damp earth and baking spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium tannins and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is medium+. This a balanced wine with many admirable traits. While this is my first time trying the wines of Chateau Laroque, I have to believe we will be seeing/hearing more from this estate as investment and quality continues to go up. Drink now and through 2034+. — 4 days ago

Château Larcis Ducasse

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Stunning nose. Might be the most alluring part of the wine. Classic Bordeaux. Lacking a bit of weight through the finish. — 6 days ago

Château Troplong Mondot

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Full bodied. Dark fruits, espresso, rooibos, blood orange, cherry liqueur. Round and silky. Powerful. Balanced. I am a fan of Troplong Mondot I must say. Great signature style that feels recognisable. — 21 days ago

Château Ausone

Saint Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

This has been my WOTN in blind tastings before and yet again Ausone came out on top for me. What a wine! Dark cherries, cassis, licorice, lavender, fine wood. It has everything. Tension, texture and a weightless silky sensation that is so irresistible. You can tell a lot of effort has been put it to making this wine. Very luxurious. The vineyards are planted with a a crazy high vine density of 12 600 vines per hectare. The quality of the fruit is through the roof. — 10 days ago

Clos Fourtet

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Blend of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc, aged for 16 months in 60% new French oak. Deep Ruby, purple edges, with aromas of black berry fruits, cedar and meaty smoky notes. On the palate flavors of baked plums and black currants with cacao and tobacco spice, on a well balanced frame. Fine dry tannins, long finish ending with fruit, earthy spice and cedar character. Nice! — 7 days ago

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

What a gorgeous nose. A lush mix of dark brooding fruit with tobacco, plum, dried herbs and a hint of herbs. A hint of band aid. Rounded and delicious. Sappy and intense. Long. — 9 hours ago
