RATINGS

92Stephen Tanzer

Explosive, flamboyantly ripe aromas of black raspberry, grilled meat and fruity pepper. Large-scaled, fat and sweet, with an almost liqueur-like ripeness and a texture like liquid silk.

91Wine Spectator

Lovely aromas of crushed raspberry and Indian spices, with hints of dried flowers. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fruity berry aftertaste.

REGION

France, Bordeaux, St.-Estephe

Saint-Estèphe is in the northern Médoc, on the left bank of the Gironde River. Although it has no First Growth estates, its five Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Growth châteaux are notable, and, in recent decades, have become favorites with reviewers and consumers. Some reviewers also note that the appellation is today making excellent Cru Bourgeois wines, which frequently offer good value. There are 3,404 acres of vineyards and a variety of soil types, from gravelly soil to soil with significant sand or clay. The two Second Growth Châteaux in St.-Estephe are Cos d’Estournel and Montrose. The Third Growth Calon-Ségur is widely admired. The principal grapes grown are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
