Chateau is a 17 hectare estate located at the extreme east of the village of Saint-Emilion. A blend of about 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc with rich aromas of red fruits and cedar spice. On the palate flavors of black cherry, currants and blackberry with notes of licorice, tobacco and leather noting toasty notes. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit and toasty character. Very Nice. Drinking well now!

Drinking nicely but could certainly hang out quite a bit longer. Cherries, leather, vanilla latte, cocoa, and white pepper + some greenness on the palate.

The venerable Helene Garcin. Awesome... makes me realize how good 2014s are. So pleasant out of the gate but so much evolution yet to come

Med body, but on the lighter side. Easy to drink. Kinda get a taste of campfire, but it weirdly works. Somewhat dry finish to me.

Nice wine without a doubt but I got the impression it’s not revealing itself completely. Time will tell...

Great St Emilion very smooth with a hint of terroir finish

It’s like a cape gooseberry on a Monday morning with hints of a misty morning on an Oregon beach with cherries.

A real go-getter of a St. Emilion, fruit forward with blackberries and heaps of leather. Tannins contribute nicely. Good friend to prime rib
