Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Wine

The commune of St-Emilion, in Bordeaux, was first classified in 1955, a hundred years after the 1855 classification of the Medoc. The classification is updated every ten years and is based on tasting, which inevitably makes it controversial. The 2006 classification was recently invalidated by the courts, for example, and the 1996 one applied instead. We await 2016. In any case, wines are divided into Premier Grand Cru classe A, Premier Grand Cru classe B, and Grand Cru classe. Only Cheval Blanc  and Ch. Ausone merit the designation Premier Grand Cru classe A. Less meaningful is the term “Grand Cru,” which can be found on the labels of over a hundred different estates and is not part of the official classification.

  • Château Patris Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The 2010 Patris has a deep, rich cherry flan nose with cedar plank and certain ripe cigar tobacco added to the mix. The kirsch-like flavor on entry is guided by a medium strength tannin that allows for further aging... athough, if this little bit of mouth pucker does not detract, the power of this wine is evident with chewy, grainy tannin and pl...
