Montagne St. Émilion, Libournais

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

I had the CB 05 just about a year ago. Might be some bottle variation but this one felt a bit more raw and green than my previous encounter. Still amazing. Just a small observation. — 5 days ago

Château Barde-Haut

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Dark ruby hue, almost inky. Notes of bell pepper, blackberry, and earthy. Medium-high tannins and acidity. Pure, fruity nose. Structured and balanced. 75 Merlot and 25 Cabernet Franc. — 18 days ago

Château Canon-la-Gaffelière

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2005 vintage. Decanted and tasted after 15 mins, 45 mins and 2 hrs. Throwing decent sed. Great color. Overt baby fat from this producer dissipated but plenty of the usual, front-palate richness found in the first decade of life still evident. In “the zone” currently. Medium bodied. Not improving but tasting like it’s closer to the front of “the zone”than the mid-section or the caboose. Flavors, concentration and overall impression sez this continues to gallop along in this lane and at this pace for another decade before fading noticeably. 11.5.23. — 24 days ago

Château Fleur Cardinale

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Great value and drinking well. PnP but would have benefited from a decant. Dark red color. Earth and smoke on the nose. Rustic wine with nice depth. Solid finish. — a month ago

Chateau de Valandraud

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Pretty good at 24 years old. Still in mid-life, solid res fruit, underlying Brett (not a problem for me), and easy drinking. But this wine got major hype way back when and prices soared. PR better than the quality. — 12 days ago

Château Quinault

L'Enclos St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1991

Need to breath and a slight blue fruit pomerol like character comes out — 10 days ago
