Porte du Roy Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 1999

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £12.50 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/128624.Viticulture in the Saint Emilion area goes back to at least Roman times and appellation status was awarded for red wines in 1936.Porte du Roy is a grower associated with the Union de Producteurs a Saint Emilion co-operative group.I started the bottle on Sunday with my dinner of roast lamb.There is some blackcurrant,blackberry and bramble style fruit with a hint of vanilla and very soft tannins.To be fair it was a little brown round the edges but it went well with the roast lamb
