Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
What a pleasure to be able to discover a thousand subtleties through a wine.
And precisely by tasting the vintages and comparing them, these nuances are easily appreciated. Without a doubt they have a family air, but each year can boast of its own richness.
Should it be drunk young or old ?
Today, it is no longer a crime to drink these wines younger. The tradition, however, is to let the red wines age over a longer period, especially the Saint Émilion and, in particular, the Bellefont Belcie
"A marvelous sleeper of the vintage from Dominique Hebrard, this 2005 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, a smoky, blackberry liqueur-filled nose with hints of licorice, earth, and truffles, full body, powerful flavors, and dramatic, but sweet tannin. Moreover, this beauty is still available at a realistic price. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030.
The Wine Advocate
"Beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry, dried lavender and licorice lead to a full-bodied palate, with supervelvety tannins and a long, long finish. Beautiful and juicy. Superb. Best after 2012. 4,165 cases made.
"Good deep red-ruby. Currant, smoke and roast coffee on the expressive nose. Suave and sweet, with a fine-grained texture and enticing inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of redcurrant and tobacco. Finishes with fine tannins and very good length."
