93James Suckling

This is exceptional for the vintage, with a fantastic depth of fruit, including blueberry and blackberry character. It’s full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a polished, caressing finish.

90Wine Spectator

A rock-solid wine, with a charcoal frame and a hefty core of crushed plum, warm fig and blackberry ganache notes, showing well-integrated singed wood accents through the finish.

89-91Robert M. Parker Jr.

...offers hints of raspberries, blueberries and wild mountain berry fruit intermixed with earth and crushed chalk. Round, ripe and medium to full-bodied with good acidity and sweet tannin...

15Jancis Robinson

WineBid Tasting Team

A deep and powerful nose of inky black fruit (almost sappy)—extremely dense... unctuously full palate and finishes long and chewy. Pair with: BBQ Brisket, Prime Rib with Fresh Horseradish, Hoisin Glazed Pork Belly, and Stinky Cheeses.


France, Bordeaux, St.-Émilion

Saint-Émilion is on the east side of the Dordogne River. At 13,400 acres it is one of Bordeaux’s largest appellations, and perhaps its most picturesque. It is also home to what has been called “the garagiste” movement of upstart, tradition-defying winemakers who produce artisanal wines in styles that are unconventional for the appellation. The village of Saint-Émilion dates from the middle ages and it sits on low hills, surrounded by ancient walls. Like its neighbor Pomerol, Saint-Émilion was not included in the famous Bordeaux classification system of 1855. But a century later a ranking system was put in place, and unlike the classification system for the Medoc, the Saint-Émilion system is reviewed every ten years, meaning that estates can be upgraded or downgraded. There are three rankings: Grand Cru Classé, Premier Grand Cru Classé B and Premier Grand Cru Classé A, with the final ranking being the best. Such legendary Saint-Émilion estates as Châteaux Ausone and Cheval-Blanc are Premier Grand Cru Classé A, along with Châteaux Pavie and Angélus, both added to the classification in 2012. Wines in this appellation are primarily Merlot, mixed with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
