Tonight I have gone back to the wines I love, Bordeaux. I have opened the 2018 Château Poesia, a right bank Bordeaux that is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc.
On the nose there is black plum, black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, chocolate, a good minerality and earth.
On the palate I am getting black cherry, black plum, black raspberry, black currant, herbal notes, oak, spice, bell pepper abd rich earthy notes.
This wine is full bodied smooth and well structured, medium+ acidity and medium + fine grained tannins that lead to a fresh long dark fruit earthy finish. I hope everyone has a great weekend and please keep safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 11 days ago
This very dark wine gives off a nose of plums and blackberries, with a savory edge of leather and tar, or forest floor. The palate offers an exquisite example of Bordeaux - smooth and savory at the five-year mark. The tannins are fine and sweet, but are able to help out with a pot roast, beef stew or pork dish. — 13 days ago
201o vintage. A large estate with 61 hectares of Saint-Emilion of which 41 are classified as Grand Cru Classé (the other 21 being Grand Cru). In reality only the best 27 hectares are used for the Grand Cru Classé. Flowers and red fruit. Very fresh with bright fruit, subtle spices and a mineral finish. Better on day 2, so you might want to decant. Good value at 24 euros. — 14 days ago
