St. Georges St. émilion, Libournais

Château Pavie Macquin

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Decanted 90 minutes. Very dark opaque colour. Nose with dark fruits, some black currant early on but some spices as well and some oak. Tasted blind the nose seems more CNP then Right Bank. Palate is dense, powerful, nice acidity in the middle, ripe fruit, volume and depth along with a delicious finish with a slight dryness. Very good but there is a little bit of warmth to it caused by alcohol that makes the whole balance very slightly out of sink with the rest. 90-91

Carafé 90 minutes. Couleur foncée et opaque. Fruits noirs, cassis aussi, du bois un peu. Fait plus CNP que Rive Droite au nez. Bouche délicieuse, puissante, dense, du volume, belle acidité en millieu de bouche, finale est assez longue, un peu asséchante et une touche alccoleuse qui affecte un peu l’équilibre d’ensemble. Très bien malgré tout, mais pas certain que ca deviendra grand. 90-91

Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Big bad Bordeaux, heavy and dark with loads of flavour for such a young wine. The nose is not hugely powerful but it is a nice combination of oak, cedar, menthol and spiced fruits. On the palate and after opening for an hour, this is almost creamy in texture, like a blackcurrant, plum and tobacco pie. There is tannin and acidity but they are balanced and allow this wine to be enjoyed young but I am sure in 10 years and once mature, this will be outstanding. — 16 days ago

Clos la Gaffelière

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015 vintage. The second wine of Château La Gaffelière, a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, from vines on the lower part ot the southern hills of the estate and young vines from the better spots. Aged in 1 year old barriques, no new wood. This has real understated class. The nose is still a bit shy, give it time to open up. Cassis, flowers and a subtle hint of truffle. Nicely concentrated, but gently extracted, this is all about finesse and elegance. It has impeccable balance, nice complexity and good length. This is not a showy wine, but a very classic gentleman. Lovely value at 20 euros. Abv. 14%. — 15 days ago

Château Beauséjour

Pentimento Montagne-St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Tried this again, 1st bottle was a dud! Made by Michele d'Aprix, an American woman who studied organic chemistry in college and ended up in Bordeaux. Chemical equation on the label is the equation for calcareous clay soil in the right bank of Bordeaux giving a unique character. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits and notes of cedar and spice. Palate shows flavors of blackberry & cherry with tobacco and pepper spice. Drying tannins, medium+ finish, nice balance ending with earthy herbs & black pepper notes. — 8 days ago

Don’t get mad at me delectable....wanted to taste one to see where things are falling. Pretty awesome so the rumors about the ‘16 vintage are probably true. — 5 days ago

Haven’t had the 16 yet - how long of a decant?

Good to go in about an hour. Was much more developed on day 2.

Château Truquet

Saint-Emilion 2016

Really liked this Bordeaux. It’s 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon with well balanced acid and tannins that make it very drinkable despite its young age. Subtle black currant on the pallet. — 7 days ago
