Château Timberlay Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur 2009
Château Timberlay (appellation Bordeaux Supérieur) is located in Saint-Andre-de-Cubzac. It symbolizes the Giraud family's wine-making roots, and is proof of the shipping company's commitment to producing much of the wine they sell. The family still lives in the imposing Château in the heart of the vineyard, surrounded by extensive grounds with impressively old trees.
Editorial Reviews for Château Timberlay Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur
Oak and herbs greet the nose over some plummy fruit nose and a base of candied fruit and nuts. Very smooth on entry, this is perhaps a touch closed down, though air does reveal nuanced hints of spearmint and leather accenting the dried red cherry and cinnamon dusted apple skins and plum fruit on the palate. The back end shows a little vanilla and some stemmy herb notes that lead to a modest cherry and herb laced finish. A bit of a modern take on Bordeaux. 86pts
