Château de Seguin Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur Cuvée Prestige 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This beautiful Cuvée Prestige has a deep ruby-red colour. On the nose there are aromas of ripe fruits suchs as blackcurrants and cherry and hints of reasted coffee, vanilla and oak. On the palate, the attack is soft and the tannins are well-balanced. There are flavours of ripe fruits and spices. Cuvée Prestige can be cellared for several years.

Château de Seguin in Bordeaux is part of the CHRIS-WINE Group. An indenpendent and family owned wine company. In 1985 Erling Carl, who was the founder of the Danish wine company CHRIS-WINE A/S, discovered Château de Seguin, thanks to the help from his friend Mr. Anthony Barton, the owner of Château Léoville-Barton and Château Langoa-Barton. Erling Carl bought the Château with adjoining 20 hectares of vines. He decided to renovate the entire estate, but first he introduced the first vintage, the 1986, which was an excellent vintage - then the renovation of Château itself began, followed by the vineyards, the vinification areas etc. The efforts of Erling Carl immediately paid off. After his death in 1991, his two sons Michael and Gert Carl took over the management of the estate. Today Château de Seguin is a renowned and modern wine producer. It controls 135 of hectares of vineyards in the Entre-Deux-Mers region in Bordeaux. Read less

Before decanting: Color is a deep purple turning to maroon at the edges. The nose has definite berry aromas, with a hint of spice. Taste is berry flavors, nice smooth tannins and a bit of alcohol heat. Finish is spicy, again with some heat. Quite a smooth drinking bordeaux, with nice mix of fruit and tannins. Seems a bit young still to me. Decanting should be beneficial.After 1 hour decanting: Nose is still nice berry and spice, but heat has mellowed out. Berry flavors are still present, but I'm also getting some sour cherry notes. Tannins have smoothed out even more. Finish remains spicy with white pepper, lasting a good 30-45 seconds. Upping my inital rating of 86 to 87 after decanting.
