St. émilion, Libournais

Château L'Arrosée

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Celery seed and pyrazine, very savory, a rough and tumble wine that shows a lot of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc character. It had a mixed reception. I enjoyed it quite a bit, but I'm a big fan of Loire Cabernet Franc and old school Bordeaux. — 7 days ago

Chateau Condat La Chapelle

Saint-Émilion Red Bourdeaux Blend 2015

Bought two bottles. One to try now and one to compare in a few years! Beautiful fruity and balanced Bordeaux. Takes about a hour to really open up. I'm excited to see how it will age. — 13 days ago

Château Canon

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1947

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny color. High-pitched nose, with some sort of volatile acidity going on. Had a molasses, tea and some kind of madeirized mischief going on with it. At times it seemed like wine, at times it went in a different direction. When it tasted like wine, it was a very memorable window. Fun to taste. Guessed 1961 Barolo... the VA and madeirized notes through me off — 22 days ago

Chateau Graves De Rabion

Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Make sure to let this one breathe. It’s big. I may have opened it a bit early, but the structure was pretty close to perfect. Love the fruit - underripe blueberries, cranberries, cherries, maybe even some lemon custard. Perfectly straddles the line between tart and sweet. Maybe 2018 is the perfect time to drink this one. — 9 days ago

Happy Bday to my friend Leland. This was a birth year wine for him. One of the best bottles I have had. Still evolving after 4 hrs and not as advanced as some are. Classic right bank fruit and aromatics. Awesome — 4 days ago

Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes

Comtes de Neipperg St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1997

I am rarely disappointed with a 97 Bordeaux. Don’t let the critics fool you. This wine has lots of mature Bordeaux character without that dry and dusty presence. The color is purple and not brick. I love this wine. — 15 days ago

Monthly 4th Friday is post Thanksgiving this year, so lots of Thanksgiving style wines!

A producer I know nothing about. Rich and ripe. Shows the warm vintage characteristics. Not quite raisin dominant, but there is definitely a sweetened/stewed dark fruit note. Overripe blackberries, plum and cassis on the nose. Very little leather or herbal/savory notes on the palate as it’s full of fruit. Tastes more Napa like than Bordeaux. Tar and sweetened tobacco.

Les Angelots du Gracia

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

2012 vintage. Decanted about an hour before tasting. Floral, velveteen nose. Very rambunctious, youthful and more chunkier like a Pomerol. Big and bold and unresolved but I dug the Johnny Rotten attitude and the Billy Idol sneer. — 5 days ago

Château La Clotte

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Elegant and already approachable with lovely black fruit (especially black cherry) and red fruit, a hint of mocha, mint and leather and just enough tannin to give it body and texture. Lovely with a long life ahead. 80% Merlot, 15% cab Franca, 5% cab Sauvignon. — 4 days ago
