Chateau Destieux St. Emilion Grand Cru Classé 2015

$85

We’d be inclined to cellar this for a while, but Antonio Galloni of Vinous proclaimed “today it is super-expressive, not to mention flat-out delicious,” awarding 92 points. Either way, it’s impressive and tasty wine.

Among the elements he identified were “bittersweet chocolate, grilled herbs, plums, violet, new oak and spice … fused together in a texturally rich, sumptuous wine that hits all the right notes.” This is intense, velvety, and very long — it’s as good a vintage of this wine as we’ve seen since the 2001.
