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.

  • 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...
