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.

Saint-Emilion on Snooth

  • Chateau Haut-Badette St.Emilion 1981

    Snoothrank:

    I was given this bottle of wine following a house clearance in Fulham. Saint Emilion on the east or 'right bank' in the Bordeaux region has a history of viticulture going back to at least the Romans. It is now the largest appellation there.My bottle comes from a small property that is part of the Janoueix empire and consists of 90% merlot and 10... Read More

  • Chateau Puy Blanquet St. Emilion 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The 2014 Puy-Blanquet St.-Emilion is a nice affordable Merlot based red with cherry, cedar and a hint of raw chocolate on the palate. Worth picking up at the price. 89. Read More

  • Chateau Montlabert 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Montlabert is a relative bargain for Saint-Emilion, but exhibits all the usual traits of wine from this commune, to wit: a veritable surfeit of cherry on the nose (sprinkled with oak), followed by considerable residual oak and good red fruit (cherry) on the palate with a hint of wet loam; finish has pucker (tannin). Although oak is still promin... Read More

  • Chateau Barde-Haut Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is ready-to-roll - although there could be another decade in this bottle if kept at 15 Celsius or so; the nose is kirsch-like, with a layer of Cypress branch and blueberry jam. Lots of vanilla, cherry and soft oak on the palate - but well integrated and harmonious. Finish has a slight tannic pucker and is very long. An excellent win... Read More

  • Chateau Clos Cheval Brun Saint Emilion 1970

    Snoothrank:

    I was given this bottle of wine after a house clearance in Fulham,I thought it an unusual bottle because it is sqare sided rather than cylindrical. I do not know where in the house it was found but the level was almost into the neck and when I opened it the corkl was sodden with wine so I would surmise reasonable storage conditions.I have not be...

  • Château Grand Mayne-St. Emilion G.c.c. St. Emilion-Rood Frans 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The 2005 Grand Mayne was rated highly upon release, and expected to last up to 20 years in the bottle (under prudent cellaring). At 12 years, this bottle was carefully aged but seems a bit past it. Reasonably good chocolate and acidic red fruit, but a slightly roasted note on the finish. 88. Read More
