For about $35, all day! Chateau Faugeres 2010 - Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. Nose and palate of ripe cherry, vanilla. Some earthiness and veggies on the palate. Great acidity balances the 15% abv. Slightly new world if I was blind, but really nice!

Black plum, a touch of mint, and unsmoked cigar on the nose, classic lush, sexy body with nice acid and well rounded tannins. A touch of spicy rye and loads of dense fruit on the palate.. Rolland at the helm makes this a steal for the money.

Dense violet, with just a bit of brick red at the rim. Smells of dark berries, herbs, .. bubblegum and yogurt? Definitely a lot of tannins, but didn't feel like too much new oak; tasted more like tannins from seeds or stems. Quite a straightforward wine; powerful on the palate, and not much elegance. Finishes long though. 90 or 91 from me I think.

Med+ across the board. Such a big bold Merlot dominant Bordeaux. Jammy with some touches of vanilla, smoke, and dark chocolate.

Lacks complexity, but good weight and power, and silky tannins. Decent.

Plum and tobacco, with some notes of tomato. Strong nose and bold flavor. Good reasonably priced St emilion grand cru.
