Le Dome, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2011
St.-Émilion is the star of Bordeaux’s Right Bank, north of the Dordogne River. The rich red wines produced in St.-Émilion, based on Merlot and Cabernet Franc, are less tannic and generally more fruit-driven in flavour than the Cabernet-based wines of Left Bank. Le Dome, which is dominated by an incredibly high percentage of Cabernet Franc (80%) and the balance Merlot (20%), is a special effort that must be tasted to be believed. The palate is opulent and full-bodied with spicy black fruits, saturated tannins and a texture so smooth you could slide down it.

Clos Fourtet, Saint Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe B 2010
Clos Fourtet is a Premier Grand Cru Classé estate in Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux. The Merlot-dominant wine is prized for its combination of elegance with ripe berry fruit, and has long been a favorite of critics and successful at award shows.The wine has an opaque blue/black color and abundant notes of forest floor, spring flowers, black raspberry and blueberry liqueur in the aromatics along with hints of espresso and white chocolate. The wine is dense, full, rich, unctuously textured and very full-bodied, with its extravagant glycerin, fruit and extract covering the wine’s somewhat tannic structure.

Chateau Malescot Saint Exupery 3eme Grand Cru Classe, Margaux 2010
Château Malescot St-Exupéry owes its name to two former owners -Simon Malescot, a royal councillor to the Bordeaux parliament, who acquired the estate in 1697, and Count Jean-Baptiste de Saint-Exupéry, who owned it from 1827 to 1853. Intense purple-bluish crimson. Focused nose of ripe red fruits. Full attack, refined, closely-integrated stuffing with focused fruit expression.
