Saint émilion Red Bordeaux Blend

Château Beau-Séjour Bécot

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

30+ minute decant was perfect. Definitely right in the drinking window. Purple color. Awesome nose filled with slate, graphite, and earth. Wine has medium depth with black cherries and all the factors found in the nose. Not super complex, but good QPR. Medium finish. — 5 days ago

Château Barde-Haut

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Last night I opened the 2016 Château Barde-Haut Saint Emilion Grand Cru. What an exquisite Right Bank Bordeaux a blend of 81% Merlot and 19% Cabernet Franc.

The nose has fragrant aromas of black cherry, black plum, black raspberry, fig, strawberry, chocolate, vanilla and damp earth.

The palate show luscious notes of black cherry, raspberry, green bell pepper, plum, herbaceous notes, black currant and crushed rock.

This wine is medium to full bodied, well balanced, rich fruited mouthfeel with medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead into a black fruit finish. Again we are all preoccupied by the goings on of the events of the last several weeks that seem to be turning everyone into weak minded individuals. Please be strong, go about your lives as normal and most of all stay safe. Enjoy your wine and be good to each other. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Some really good vintages from them as of late making them a great QPR as well.

Château Laroque

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Just a baby at this point, but really came alive on day 2. I believe this will really start to shine in about 3-4 years and for the $30 it costs I will be buying more. — a day ago

Aerated 2 hours and the consumed over 2 days. Almost purple in color. Nose of loam, dark fruit and cedar. Palate of dark berries, plums, graphite and licorice. Smooth tannins. Finish of medium length. We enjoyed this with a strip loin roasted in my BGE. Favorable PVR. @andrew schirmer and @nancy dwight were sheltering in place. — 8 days ago

Château Monbousquet

Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Feeling this wine! Very dark color. Playful, complex nose. Not overly tannic. Drinking well so young. 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. $33 for half bottle at Total Wine. Get more of this! There is a second wine, Angelique de Monbousquet. — 8 days ago

Château Coutet

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Way young and aromatically not very expressive at first. It’s got a nice medium texture with some openness to the weave - nothing monolithic. With several hours the nose opens a bit but this really needs some time — 12 days ago

Château Franc Bigaroux

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Vintage 2005 / I wanted a comforting wine, so better choose an older one. I wanted a reliable wine, so choose a right bank Bordeaux. I wanted a wine that cheeres me up, so it became Saint Emilion. Lots of red fruit. Well ripened, velvety taste, spicyness. Paired with a Flemish stew and cauliflower gratin. I think this is my last bottle, the best tasted. — 15 days ago

Château Haut-Gravet

"Grand Chemin" Grand Cru St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Open and low-toned nose has dark plum and blackberry, a bit of vanilla, and a liquid mineral/iodiney note. Soft and intense, it’s got mostly savory flavors that cling nicely and are a bit athletic right now. A couple of years will put this already nice wine in an even better place. — 8 days ago

So what a difference time can make - this is young and powerful and bold and big red fruit - still young - but decanted for two hours and bam wham big time good - I love the integration of the 57% merlot and 43% cab franc - thank you Phillipe Melka for such a wonderful mastered crafted wine - bravo and deep smiles — 4 days ago
