Chateau la Fleur Boireau Montagne-Saint-Emilion 2005

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

From just outside of Saint-Émilion, this red Bordeaux is a stellar value. Robust and hearty, with plum, currant and raisin fruit notes underscored by toasty oak. This wine just screams to be tasted with a big, juicy steak. Food pairing: red meats, pasta Flavor type: traditional Body type: medium-full Finish: elegant

A good candidate for the cellar; the notes of spice, herb, anise, graphite and pepper hint at how good this wine will be in a few years.

Red berries and cherries waft from this wine initially. However, with a swirl of the glass, a bit of leather and tobacco force their way into your nose. The body is fairly light, but has many herbal and fruity layers packed into its long-finish. This wine is easy drinking but complex enough to keep you interested. Will go well with nearly any dish, be it light or heavy, that calls for a red wine.

From the satellite commune of Montagne Saint-Émilion, this is a plush, textured example of right bank Bordeaux at an affordable price. Graphite, cedar, plums and pen ink are abundantly prevalent, harkening to the style of the increasingly expensive classified growths.
