Chateau Puy Blanquet Futures Pre-Sale 2011
deep notes of violet, slight licorice, and some hints of berries on the nose, but pretty restrained otherwise. Dry, slight minerality and tannins with a medium structure.
Three and a half glasses
This is a wine that deserves to cellar for a few more years in order to reach its full potential. The black pepper and seared-steak flavours are strong, and will continue to blend and mature, hopefully balancing out the delicate black fruits of this vintage. The tannins are incredibly soft, creating a precarious balance with the acid. Overall, a wonderful wine that will be enjoyable for a long time to come.

This authentic St Emilion will match perfectly well with grilled meats and can also be served with game in sauce, especially duck. You can pour this wine with cheese as well. Red and deep in color, this wine is round with some supple tannins and lots of red fruit on the palate. This primarily Merlot wine will surprise you by its body, and its intensity and silkiness.
This stunning red wine from the outstanding 2005 vintage is ruby coloured and exhibits a fragrant spicy cherry-scented nose intertwined with strong herb and earth aromas. In the mouth the wine reveals
