Emmanuel Darnaud

Château des Tours

Réserve Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2009

Intensely aromatic on the nose and deep and mouth coating on the palate. Kirsch cherries, black cherry liquor, lots of exotic spices and purple flowers. It’s a powerful wine and the ripeness of the vintage shows, but it still displays an underlying elegance and seductive nature that comes inevitably with anything Emmanuel Raynaud of Château Rayas, touches. — 2 years ago

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2009

Nice follow up after Emmanuel Rougets Vosne Romanee 2009. This one really threw many of us off. Perhaps it was because the person who brought it slow-oxed it since morning. Anyway here goes... Very beautiful, floral, charming. Rousseau like. More fresh than the Rouget. Developing herbal notes towards the end. Guessed Mugneret Gibourg. Shocked everyone. — 4 years ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

9.5

Mother Mary of God! Why didn’t I buy more of this wine? It’s so good tonight with at least a decade and half ahead of it to get even better.

The 2006 a vintage that followed 2005, more than difficult, right? Not here!

The is classic good Margaux. The nose is like an aphrodisiac...fills the nostrils and runs through the whole body. Ripe, fragrant, floral; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, black plum, baked strawberries, dry cranberries with creamy raspberries. Steeped tea, limestone, dry crushed rocks, rich forest floor, sweet tarry notes, black licorice, vanilla, mixed dark berry cola, fresh tobacco, suede leather, stem inclusion, dark red florals with fresh violets.

The body is medium full and pure heaven. It glides effortlessly over the palate. The structure, tension, length & balance are pushing its peak. It’s a perfect tug of war with fruit & earth. It’s the definition of elegance. Ripe, fragrant, floral; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, black plum, baked strawberries, dry cranberries with creamy raspberries. Layered baking spices; vanilla, cinnamon, clove & a touch of nutmeg. Steeped tea, limestone, beautiful medium intensity inter-mixed Asian-Indian spices, dry crushed rocks, rich forest floor, sweet tarry notes, black licorice, mixed dark berry cola, fresh tobacco, suede leather, stem inclusion, dark red florals with fresh violets. The acidity is waterfall perfect. The finish is crazy beautiful, elegant, well balanced, rich, ripe and heaven.
