This offering from St.-Emilion is just what you might expect from Bordeaux in this price range. On the nose, blueberry is very present with a hint of lead pencil. The predominant flavors are cassis and tobacco, with medium body and dusty tannins leading into a medium finish with notes of leather.
Château Treytins, owned by one of Bordeaux' big families, the Nonys, produces wines in two appellations, Lalande de Pomeral and Montagne St.-Emilion. Of the two, the tiny 6-acre property in Montagne offers the better value. A partially oak-aged wine, it has ripe flavors, with a light, fruity style.
A favorite of ours for the past several vintages, the 2000 is the best yet, an intense mouthful of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, long on fruit, intense in its flavor, beautiful in its deep purple hue. Serve with fillet of beef, chili, or calf's liver.
The smell of ripe, sweet wild berry leaps out of the glass. Tons of chocolate, tobacco and cherry really showcase this Merlot/Cabernet blend. Silver medal winner at the Paris Fair 2001.
It is located on the border between Lalande de Pomerol and Montagne St. Emilion. The average age of the vines is over 25 years. The soil has a fairly high clay content. Vinification is aimed at obtaining fruity aromas in a wine that does not require aging to be enjoyed. The wine is 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Ever hike through the woods and just inhale? That smell of ripe, sweet wild berry leaps out of the glass and grabs you. Tons of chocolate, tobacco and cherry really showcase this Merlot-Cabernet blend. The finish is long and will last for what seems to be forever.
