Famille Masson Côte Madeleine Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

$29.99

The aromas of chocolate and violets that greet you up fron with grace are driven by the 80% Merlot, but the soft palate you might expect does not follow. The 20% Cab Franc offers impressive pound-for-pound musculature, bringing structure and power to the wine. As right-bank Bordeaux goes, this is a warrior prince. Send it to the dinner table with a rich, flavorful meal and enjoy the fireworks.

Harder on the nose than in the mouth. Not much fruit. More licorice and then coffee.

St. Emilion is becoming my favorite value region in Bordeaux. The wines are age-worthy and relatively inexpensive, and strike a balance between the soft wines of Pomerol and the tightly wound monsters from the Medoc. This 12-year old $32 bottle is delicious. It’s still pretty youthful, but it is displaying some secondary characteristics. The texture is rich and velvety. The tannins are present but silky. There’s some green pepper from the Cab Franc, but Merlot is definitely the dominant force here.
