Chateau Pindefleurs St-Emilion Bordeaux 2009
Bordeaux Red Blends from St-Emilion, Bordeaux, France
The complex aroma is punctuated by long-lasting touches of fully-ripe red berries. Drunk as a young wine, Château Pindefleurs allows its fresh fruitiness to blossom. Kept in a cellar, it unrolls a long and silky taste in the mouth, the mark of the Grands Crus of Saint-Emilion.
Blend: 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc
James Suckling - "A red with soft and velvety tannins, ripe fruit and a medium finish. Coffee, sweet tobacco and red fruits. Delicious. "

About St-EmilionView a map of St-Emilion wineries (saint eh-meel-YOHN)
A region named after the charming, quaint historical town in Bordeaux, St-Émilion is situated on the right bank of Bordeaux. It's grapes of choice are Merlot and Cabernet Franc (called Bouchet on the right bank). The region has its own classification system, updated and revised every few years. Two of the hottest chateaux of the area (and the only Premier Grand Cru Classé A) are Chateau Ausone and Chateau Cheval Blanc.
St.-Émilion produces the most wine on the right bank of Bordeaux. As most of its wine is based primarily on Merlot, St-Emilion wines are described as having finesse and elegance. The best wine of the region can last upward of 10-20 years, like a good left-banker, but many find that the wines here matuer earlier than those based on Cabernet Sauvignon. The soils in the area differ greatly, from gravel to limestone to clay and sand. As a result, the wines of this region are diverse. Quality wines display silky tannins and ripe, soft fruit – the higher quality wine showing full-bodied texture and layers of complexity.
About France - Other regionsWhen it comes to wine, France is a classic. Classic blends, grapes and styles began in the country and they still remain. Think about it - people ask for a Burgundian style Pinot Noir, they refer to wines as Bordeaux or Rhone blends - Champagne even had to pass a law to stop international wineries from putting their region on the label of all sparkling wine.
