1999 Puy St George [St.-Emilion]
[Bordeaux/Meritage-style blend]
Posted by Mike P. on 2005-11-07 22:12:42 [Show TN in Text Format]
Chateau/Producer:Puy St George
Country:France
AOC:St. George St. Emilion
Region:St. Emilion
Wine Score:90
Notes:Ruby in color with pink edges; nose of tar and roses (that should be a song by some goth group), smoke, plum and a hint of butterscotch; medium-bodied with a very lovely mouthfeel and a beautiful balance, wonderfully-integrated yet firm tannins and bursting with flavor. Not a particularly impressive finish, but that notwithstanding, very drinkable.

This is IMO a prototypical Bordeaux wine with unique character and complexity. It's not a world-class wine by any means, but it demonstrates how superior the French can be at making even average vintages and yields into wines that are way above average. This is a wine that creeps up on you - do not let first impressions sway you too much.
Tasting Date:2005-11-07
Production Notes:This wine is made using the most modern vinification techniques and aged for 18 to 20 months in new oak barrels.
Price US$:17.00
