Bordeaux, France, Libournais, Merlot, Red Wine, St. Émilion Grand Cru


Consumed over the course of two days. Unlike the La Confession from a few days earlier, this actually improved significantly from day 1 to day 2. It started out really jammy on day one and lacked a little definition among all the fruit jam. On day two, the nose still showed as fruity, jammy, and simple as on day one, but the wine had changed significantly on the palate. Medium weight with good texture, grippy tannins, nice plum and blackberry fruit and even a touch of earth. Not my favorite St. Emilion Chateau in terms of its style, but it still drank really nicely. Can be opened now, but I think it’ll be better in 3-5 years and hold for quite some time beyond that.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
