Château Destieux Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The oak in Destieux's 2011 is better integrated than usual, and this attractive, elegant, full-throttle St.-Emilion reveals lots of red and black fruits along with earthy soil undertones and hints of roasted herbs as well as subtle oak.
