Château Bechereau Cuvé Spéciale Montagne Saint-Emilion 2011
Grown in clay soil on 30 y/o vines, this wine is aged for 18 months in stainless steel or concrete tanks to allow the best expression of the terroir. These crus with flexibility are intended to accompany white meats, red meats and cheeses.
Red intense color, black fruits, cinnamon, with well balanced tannins. Refined spicy and perfumed notes.
85% Merlot, 5% Cabernet, 10% Cab Franc
Youthful appearance, light colour, weak rim; not a bad nose, nice hint of warmth and red berry fruit, seems quite evolved, mature even, for a three year old claret; attractive sweetness on the attack, but then the dry dreariness that pervades this wine takes over and marks the palate and the finish with unripe fruit and raw bitters; decent length but distinct lack of charm.
