6. Chateau Clement St-Jean Cru Bourgeois Medoc (2010)

« Prev Next » 6 of 8
Previously available for $14.99
Rich on the nose with scents of tobacco, vanilla, dried herbs, plums and black currant fruit. Rather supple on entry, with a fairly rich mouthfeel. This is fairly fruit driven but the fruit is fresh and precise. red plums, red currant, and some lingonberry fruits all come together on the palate over soft tannins and supportive acids to give this a rich feel. There are subtle oak, mineral earth and dried herb accents adding detail in the mouth with some strawberry flavors that lead to a moderately long, slightly chocolaty finish. Showing just a bit of heat and extraction, this still manages to impress and the tart cranberry flavors of the finish show sneaky length. A bit of a powerhouse at the price. 86pts

  • 490679PMinns Living in France and fairly familiar with Bordeaux wines, I have not encountered any of the above, let alone tasted them...but will look out for them in the future! My personal favourites for many years come from the MILHADE winegrowing estate in Libourne. They have consistently good Bordeaux Supérieur ( Château Recougne and Château Tour d'Auron) a Lussac St. Emilion (Château Lyonnat) and a Lalande de Pomerol (Château Sergant). All reasonably priced at between €8 and €11. 2009 was an excellent year for all these and 2010 is shaping up well. I have seen them on sale in Asia (Seoul) but not yet in the U.S.
