Chateau Sainte-Barbe 2012 Bordeaux Superieur
Following up on the immense success of the 2011 here is the 2012 Chateau Sainte Barbe. The Chateau was originally built in 1777 by Jean Baptise Lynch, owner of Chateau Lynch Bages who owned it until his death in 1835. Itís unique location on the peninsula between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers allowed it to avoid the phylloxera epidemic that wiped out most of the Bordeaux vineyards in the late 1800ís. Today its 70+ acres of gravelly alluvial soil vineyards on the right bank of the Garonne are about 50% replanted and consist of 80% of the Merlot with the remaining 20% divided between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Strict control of the vineyard is the key to the high quality of the fruit and careful state-of-the art winemaking techniques including aging up to 12 months in new oak barrels, does the rest. This 2012 is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. It has already won a half dozen gold medals including a Best Of Class, 93 points in the Los Angeles International Wine Competition. It shows deep color and on the nose it reveals black currants, cedary spice and graphite minerals. On the palate it's rich and robust with cassis, roasted coffee, black plums and more minerality. The tannins chewy and round. Drinks beautifully right now but it has the the intensity and structure to age gracefully for up to 5 years or more. A great wine for the price!!
