Chateau Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Was expecting to be barefoot after trying this wine given all the high ratings. But still wearing my socks. Very nice wine; dark fruits up front with a bit of leather. More full than mid body, but smooth tannins. Went well with the lamb.

Château La Grâce Dieu

Les Menuts St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Superb nose with tar, meat juice, black currant, an irony thing. This is inviting and strong, very inviting. The palate is wonderful! Super acid backbone with a bright black currant all along, a velvety touch on the sides that remains all along, tannins have already started to integrate. There is width, there is length, there is fruit, there is grip. The finish lasts for a long time with a nice fruit, some meat juice too and a pinch of bitterness. V
In a great place right now!

Château Destieux

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

On the nose, leather, spice and dark fruit. In the mouth, dark fruit, iron, lilac, good secondary flavors. Even after a 2 hr decant, plenty of tannins. Decent acid. Medium-long length. There is a slightly disjointed element to it, but overall a fairly serious and deep wine. — 5 days ago

Château La Gaffelière

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

1 hour decant was perfect. Dark purple color. Nose of firewood burning on a cold night. Wine is dark cherry with some medicinal elements. Great depth! Medium finish. High quality producer in my mind as this is the first time I’ve had it. I really enjoyed it. Paired well with seasoned, marinated beef skewers and lamb steak. — 11 days ago
