Lussac St. émilion, Libournais

Château Monbousquet

Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Just needs some air👍🏼
Parker dropped his score from a 95 to a 93 back in 2010..
Not as enjoyable as the late 90’s Napa cabs I had earlier in the week, those had more complexity

I was fairly certain you wouldn’t really enjoy this...glad you did.

Château Le Grand Faurie

St. Émilion Grand Cru 2012

Strolled into Trader Joe’s; the shelf was stocked with this. Couldn’t believe it. Picked up another half case. This is a phenomenal bordeaux and one of the best QPRs around. Haven’t tasted in a year and it’s just as memorable. Lots of great mushroom and sweaty gym socks with a dusty, tannic finish. Perfect example of a phenomenal wine at sub-$20 that drinks at 3-4x the price. — 20 days ago

Château Bellefont-Belcier

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Tonight's wine is the 2016 Château Bellefont-Belcier. A Right Bank Bordeaux blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the nose there is abundant black fruit, black cherry, blackberry, black plum, bbn lack currant, chocolate, tobacco, menthol, herbs, graphite, oak and earth.

On the palate the black fruit continues throught with black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, green bell pepper, chocolate, toasty oak, tobacco and earthy flavors.

This wine is full bodied with a firm, vibrant mouthfeel and medium + acidity and high mouth coating crunchy tannins that lead into a long dark fruit finish. Let's have a wonderful weekend and please be safe doing so. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Château Larcis Ducasse

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Still very youthful & tight like most 05’s showing lots of black fruits, graphite, licorice & violets. Not sure this will rise to reach RP 100 pt score but will need a min of another 5 - 10 years. — 14 days ago
