Château Roudier

Montagne-Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

This wine is a testament to the “buy the vintage” concept. Back when I couldn’t really afford cellear-able wines, I heard that 2010 was a great vintage for a Bordeaux and bought this at Trader Joe’s. I kept it cellared until now. The wind poured a deep, reddish purple in the glass. I aerated it and let it sit for nearly an hour after that. Although its nose was moderate, the flavors were fantastic. Strawberry, cranberry, other dried fruit. The tannins were intense. With a fairly decent finish. This is all I could hope for from a bottle of Bordeaux. I will probably be revisiting this winery, since it’s so easy through Trader Joe’s. The wine was a perfect accompaniment to the grass fed ribeye steaks we paired it with. Talk about a great deal for just probably $12-$13 at Trader Joe’s. #bordeauxrouge #saintemilion #redwine #traderjoes #rightbank #rightbankbordeaux — 5 months ago

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Rich and warm dark chocolate and raisin nose foreshadows coming depth. Browning grasses, hazelnuts and baked pecans, cinnamon-blueberry tort, black cherry and black currant, wet rose petals, violet-cocoa, and jasmine branch. Tight and young entry still satisfies with spruce buds, pronounced tea leaf, sharp oak tones, cinnamon, red cherry, underripe red currant, pointy graphite; myrrh. Don’t drink ‘em if you got ‘em.

9.0

8.9/9.0 premature at this stage. It’s too youthful and grippy right now. Good fruit, delicious bouquet. Just needs some polish. #saintemilion — 8 months ago

Clos La Madeleine

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Loveliest of mushroom-violet, saddle leather and fresh wool, dark legume, black olive, cool licorice notes and lavender. A graphite tip made of concentrated grape; a fig parchment carefully folded over smoke. Outstanding nose.
Tobacco flaking blackly over licks of flame, chicory, black licorice, cloves and black olives dance and darken to blackberry, charred elm and black pastry. Biomass folding in crystalline-spiked, smoky, charred cedar. Burnt cinnamon and peek-a-boo plum. Loamy and dense earth that encapsulates. Great wine to grow on!

I found it very aromatic and exploding with #Cabernetfranc aromas and flavors. It’s clean and fluid and fantastic for the price. #saintemilion — a year ago

Château de Fonbel

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Kirsch-y chocolate, wet violets, espresso, star anise, Saigon cinnamon, seared steak on butter, broken stick cinnamon, biomass is rain, and baked cinnamon apple smells. Subdued in comparison to its nose, the earthy and herbaceous entry features smoky soils, marinated mushroom, dusty oak, dried bing cherry, cranberry sharpness, black olive, date, and dried black currant. Lightest burnt rosemary almost refutes mention.

Château la Grâce Fonrazade

Persevero Saint Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

MICHAEL COOPER DipWSET
9.1

Deep ruby color medium(+) aromas and flavors ripe red fruit and tart black fruit (red currants, cranberries, red tart plums, black cherries and plums) secondary aromas of pencil shavings, cedar and cocoa powder. Light balsamic aromas and flavors. Medium body medium acidity, medium(+) fine grained tannin and medium(+) finish. It is a good compromise between a traditional #saintemilion #stemilion #stemiliongrandcru and a more modern, riper contemporary approach. — 3 years ago
