Tour du Sème Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This is another estate that has experienced a dramatic increase in quality since being acquired by Bernard Magrez. Moreover, since it is a large estate (180 acres), the wines tend to sell at a reasonable price ... good news for consumers. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2003 offers both complexity and pleasure. Already sensual and evolved, it reveals soft, sexy notes of plums, figs, black currants, pain grille, and earth. Although full-bodied, opulent, pure, and rich, it appears to be on a fast evolutionary track, so consumption over the next decade is recommended. -Robert Parker

Leather and bramble nose - doesnt offer too much, but its solid. Rich and very silky with well integrated tannins. Very nice coffee, chocolate and cedar aromas. Low acidity and smooth on the finish.
