Saint-Emilion Wine

St-Emilion is a commune in Bordeaux which is located along the right (northeast) bank of the Dordogne. The wines here are dominated by the Merlot grape, followed by Cabernet Franc. Soil types include gravel, clay, and limestone. Unlike the Medoc, St-Emilion did not receive its classification until 1955. The commune is the home of such renowned and wildly expensive wines as Cheval Blanc and Ch. Ausone.

  • Chateau Belair St. Emilion Grand Cru Classe 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This classic Grand Cru opens up well with a beautiful, sparkling cherry red colour and an omnipresent nose of cranberry, cedar and sweet cherry. Entry carries a slightly sweet cherry pie plus earthy notes which finish medium on the palate. Truly delicious and perfect now - although one could hold for 2-3 more years on account of some lingering ... Read More

  • Jonathan Maltus le Lastau Saint Emilion 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines selection and unfortunately, as tasted, an overpriced stinker. Decanted this and allowed it to sit for a while. Opens with dusty ripe Cherry & Strawberry on the nose, tasting - very dry, acidic, and tannic, long mineral plum boysenberry finish. While the fullness of the nose promised something, in the mouth, it is surprisingly wea... Read More

  • Chateau Reynaud-Lacoste Bordeaux 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Not particularly aromatic with faint sour red fruit aromas and suggestions of smoke, soil, leather and dried flowers subtly emerging on the nose. Fruity and tart in the mouth, this is pleasant if rustic with a curiously jammy edge to the tart wild cherry and raspberry flavors. Simple, fresh, and fun to drink with candied cherry fruit through the... Read More
