Berry Bros. & Rudd Berry’s Own Selection – St. Émilion 2008

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Vintage: 2008
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – St. Émilion

This wine was tasted during a tasting of Bordeaux over the holidays covering two wines from the Right and Left Banks.  I found this wine not quite as nice as the Pomerol or the Pauillac, though it was still excellent, well worked tannins and a classic earthy Bordeaux finish.  This wine will happily age for a few more years.

Le Carillon De l’Angélus 1997

Vintage: 1997
Type: Bordeaux
Country: France

An excellent wine from St. Emilion made from merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc.  The flavours were intense and full, which you would expect from a St. Emilion.  This wine needs to be decanted and left to breathe, as the wine took some while to open up.  Recommended.
