About Chateau Reine Blanche 2011 Saint Emilion Grand Cru
Here is an amazing find. 10-year-old Saint Emilion Grand Cru that's lush and vibrant. You haven't heard much about the 2011 vintage and the reason is that it followed two monumental vintages 2009 and 2010. When the wines of 2011 appeared with beautiful refinement and charm they were quickly overlooked. Wine Spectator said this about 2011 Saint Emilions; "St.-Emilion Cabernet Franc excelled, buttressing the Merlot. Solid vintage that should age nicely," so please don't overlook this beauty.
From a property owned by the talented Francois Despagne of Chateau Grand Corbin-Despagne a man who consistently produces polished and accomplished wines. The estate is a mere 15 acres but with mature vines, excellent soils and good exposure. The wine aged 12 months in oak barrels and now of course bottle-aged to a peak of perfection over 10 years, this 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc is the epitome of a fine Saint Emilion Grand Cru Bordeaux. Best of all this is smooth, gently aged claret is available at an incredible discounted price. Don't miss it!!
