91-93pts, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2015 Edmond de Rothschild “Chateau des Laurets” St. Emilion is something special and even after a barrage of fabulous Bordeaux offers this year, I’m still calling it the Bordeaux of the year. It absolutely dazzles, displaying all the silky, elegant tannins and harmonious nature characteristic of the vintage. Lay some down in a dark cellar for the long haul but don’t be afraid to enjoy some right now.
The 50 hectare estate of Maurice Robert is the jewel of this beautiful growing region, located east of Bordeaux. Robert is first and foremost a viticulturist, tending his vines like gardens. The Bordeaux Rouge 2016, a barrel-fermented, vibrant blend Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with juicy cassis fruit and just the right touch of savory spice. It is a perfect choice for roasted poultry, grilled burgers or steaks or any Alpine cheese.
The old vines are rooted in a mix of sand, clay and limestone, the perfect mix for bringing out finesse, juicy fruit and mineral length in Merlot, Cab Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2015 is a marvel, featuring a deep garnet-purple color and cedar-laced nose of roses, blackberries and Bing cherry. Medium-full bodied, the fragrant fruit gains volume in the mouth, finishing long and mineral. For this price, it’s simply amazing. I dare anybody to disagree!
Tenuta Sette Cieli or “The Estate of Seven Skies” is named for the view atop the tiny estate, perched up on a hill overlooking Bolgheri from nearly 1300 ft. Lucky for us, the critics don’t know about this one yet! The 2018 Tenuta Sette Cieli ‘Yantra’ is a wine that if you haven’t heard of you need to try now. Those who have bought it here have raved to me and continue to repurchase. And for great reason. This is easily one of my favorite “Tuesday Nighters” in recent memory.
