La Fleur Poitou

La Fleur Poitou

An relatively inexpensive Bordeaux – right bank, St. Emilion – from Total $22. It’s from vintage 2018, so not really old enough to drink. Here’s our first taste:

Look: ruby medium, viscosity medium;

Smell: blackberries, sweet even if not ripe, and a little tart, raspberries, smoke, gravel;

Taste: Acidity: medium; tannin: medium;

Think: Is it that a young St. Emilion tastes like the berries it will eventually taste like but a little less ripe? Very nice overall, not too heavy. It’s Merlot after all.

AOC is Lussac Saint-Emilion
