Region: Bordeaux > Libournais> St. Emilion
Price: $15 – Trader Joes
Full bodied with earthy and mineral notes. Hints of black cherry, plum, black berry and vanilla. The body was medium and dry, with high alcohol, acid and tannins.
Due to high tannins and acid, pair with meats that can stand up to it such as beef and lamb.
Excellent value wine. You won’t find too many at this price for a Grand Cru so grab a few bottles for the holidays as your guests will not be disappointed. Ready to drink now but will likely become better over time.
