St. émilion, Libournais

Château Fonplégade

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Smelling this wine put such a smile on my face. A heavenly cacophony of dark red fruit, vanilla and cedar. On the palate, this is a very full bodied, virile Saint Emilion with lots of red fruits - cranberry, blackberry, cassis - and a wave of strong espresso, dark chocolate and vanilla.

Still incredibly youthful, very dry with abundant tannin and pitch-perfect acidity. Finish is very long. Impressive and seriously enjoyable stuff.

@Timothy Lynch thx, my favorite dish which I can only eat two/three weeks a year when there are fresh capuchins. Recipe of a Michelin starred restaurant. A recipe for my best bottles.

Château Laforge

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Lovely cherry, strawberry and fine liquorice notes on the nose with supple round tannin that shows great depth. Needs a good hour to open up. Delicious merlot pairs well with a roasted lamb. — 9 days ago

Château Haut-Segottes

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

The 2015 vintage set a record for perfect 100 Point wines from Wine Enthusiast, and around half of those were from Saint Émilion. At $40/bottle buy this one!

Not as layered or deep as the best Bordeaux’s, this is earthy and smooth with a satisfying finish that just leaves you wanting a bit more. Again, at $40, I think the “bit more” would likely cost you 3-4 multiples at least.
