Great Saint Emilion Grand Gru Bordeaux!

$34.99 Before Discounts!

 

I recently tried a great Bordeaux from Saint Emilion that is already drinking very well….after a couple hours in the decanter! Every wine collection should have some moderately priced Bordeaux!

Background: Johnathan Maltus and Chateau Teyssier

Dating back to the 1700’s The Chateau Teyssier property has been transformed over the past 20 years by winery owner and winemaker Johnathan Maltus.  He has properties in both Saint Emilion as well as California where he makes the World’s End Wines (which we carry as well). Chateau Teyssier is the home base for Bordeaux operations and is also where Thomas calls home.

Here are some Highlights for the 2010 Chateau Teyssier Bordeaux:

Nick’s Tasting Notes

Medium bodied and definitely true to Bordeaux’s traditional form.  It’s been some time since I tried a merlot that tasted so focused, with acidity really taking center stage with graphite flavors.  Somewhat earthy, but no barnyard, everything snaps together nicely after a couple hours. Over that time it did gain some weight and fruit, but this is definitely for those of you who prefer medium bodied, food friendly wines! Worth the wait, and I’ll be curious to see what it will do in a few years.

From Robert Parker’s Review: 92 points

An over-achieving estate for a number of years now, this dense purple wine exhibits oodles of creme de cassis and licorice, hints of subtle barbecue smoke and toast, terrific texture and a long, succulent, fleshy finish. It is not all that dissimilar from the 2009 in terms of its flamboyance and drinkability, although I suspect that analytically the pH is slightly lower and the tannins a bit higher than those of its older sibling. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
