RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

You have to like the mineral, plum and cedar aromas that follow through to the full-bodied palate, with soft tannins and herb, tobacco and plum flavors. Long and silky.

****Michael Broadbent

On top form and most impressive; massive, tannic, needing at least 20 years bottle age. Now sweet, ripe, spicy with silky tannins.

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.
