Winemaker Notes

JS 96
James Suckling

Lots of blueberry and blackberry with crushed-stone and limestone undertones. It’s full-bodied with firm, silky tannins that are wonderfully polished.

Barrel Sample: 95-96

Jeb Dunnuck
Another gorgeous wine from this talented team, the 2020 Château Poesia reveals a dense purple color as well as pure darker berry and cassis fruits. followed by classic Saint-Emilion chalky minerality, violets, and camphor. With medium to full-bodied richness, it has a seamless, sexy texture, notable underlying freshness and purity, and a great finish. This will be another hidden gem of a wine that will drink well in its youth yet also evolve for 20 years or more from cold cellars.
Barrel Sample: 94-96

The Poesia is absolutely gorgeous in 2020. Bright, beautifully perfumed and elegant, it’s a total knockout. The energy and purity of the flavors is just remarkable. Sweet red cherry, red plum, tobacco, cedar, mint, mocha and dried flowers all meld together. Simply dazzling, and it may turn out to be the best vintage yet. That's pretty much all there is to it. -Antonio Galloni
Barrel Sample: 93-95
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Revealing a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Poesia bursts with flamboyant notions of stewed black plums, mulberries and juicy blackberries, plus hints of tar, licorice, potpourri and dried mulberries with a waft of incense. The medium to full-bodied palate is charged with a racy backbone of freshness, delivering layers of dried berries and exotic spices with a plush texture, finishing long and perfumed. Barrel Sample: 91-93

D 91
Decanter
Same owners as Barde-Haut on slightly cooler clay-limestone soils, the tannins are a little angular, but there is a ton of liquorice, damson and violet notes. It is poised even though broad-shouldered. 60% new oak.

St-Émilion Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Marked by its historic fortified village—perhaps the prettiest in all of Bordeaux, the St-Émilion appellation, along with its neighboring village of Pomerol, are leaders in quality on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. These Merlot-dominant red wines (complemented by various amounts of Cabernet Franc and/or Cabernet Sauvignon) remain some of the most admired and collected wines of the world.

St-Émilion has the longest history in wine production in Bordeaux—longer than the Left Bank—dating back to an 8th century monk named Saint Émilion who became a hermit in one of the many limestone caves scattered throughout the area.

Today St-Émilion is made up of hundreds of independent farmers dedicated to the same thing: growing Merlot and Cabernet Franc (and tiny amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon). While always roughly the same blend, the wines of St-Émilion vary considerably depending on the soil upon which they are grown—and the soils do vary considerably throughout the region.

The chateaux with the highest classification (Premier Grand Cru Classés) are on gravel-rich soils or steep, clay-limestone hillsides. There are only four given the highest rank, called Premier Grand Cru Classés A (Chateau Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Pavie) and 14 are Premier Grand Cru Classés B. Much of the rest of the vineyards in the appellation are on flatter land where the soils are a mix of gravel, sand and alluvial matter.

Great wines from St-Émilion will be deep in color, and might have characteristics of blackberry liqueur, black raspberry, licorice, chocolate, grilled meat, earth or truffles. They will be bold, layered and lush.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
