St Emilion Grd Cru 18
One of the big name St Emilions from Gerard Perse, tiny allocation.
“….a very serious nose of crushed blackberries, warm black plums, mulberries and cassis plus touches of camphor, lavender, black olives and crushed rocks with a waft of woodsmoke. Full-bodied and laden with taut, muscular black fruit and loads of mineral accents, it has a firm structure of super ripe, finely grained tannins and amazing freshness, finishing very long and very layered. “ 96-98/100 RP Wine Advocate 95-98/100 Wine Spectator 97-98/100 Suckling
