Bouquey St-Emilion Grand Cru 2015
Like most wines from Bordeaux’s Right Bank, this is 60% Merlot; (the rest is 25% Cab Sauvignon, and 15% Cab Franc). The 2015 growing season on the Right Bank was magnificent. Master of Wine James Lawther wrote recently of the 2015 Right Bank reds “I wouldn’t say it’s the greatest ever, but it’s a very, very good vintage.”
Notes of Merlot jump from the nose on this wine: think licorice, plum, leather, iodine. The mouth is clean, mid-weight, and very well balanced, with smooth tannins and notes of cherry jam and pepper.
