Tertre du Moulin: Saint Émilion Grand Cru Bordeaux 2006

Tertre du Moulin: Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Bordeaux 2006

The Romans planted vineyards in what was to become Saint-Émilion as early as the 2nd century AD. With traditions of wine making as rooted as this, expectations for a fine wine are typical, and this offering does not disappoint.

The nose was of blackberry and cherry blossom. The palate was full with blackberry, currant, oak, eucalyptus, and hints of musty earth and a citrus spice. Accompanying these fine flavors were good tannins and strong acid elements. The finish was fairly long and filled with currant. As the bottle opened, one noticeable change was in the nose: a pleasant mocha note. The palate improves greatly as the flavors remain full, but the overall sips became well rounded, eliminating the abruptness of flavor transitions from the initial tasting. Day 2 tasting was surprisingly good, nearly the same as Day 1, but that was because this Bordeaux does contain sulfites. Non the less, this is a selection worth purchasing, and even cellaring. Cheers!
