The Full Review
Bordeaux is in a pickle. They've had no sense of place since Robert Parker strolled in with his “million dollar” schnaz. Times are a changing...sort of...maybe soon….we’ll see. Here is a bottle, though, that gives a sense of what Bordeaux would be like with more of a biodynamic approach to it. It is blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, fermented with natural yeast, and fermented in cement tanks with very little sulphur added; a natural wine lovers dream. The result is not your typical Bordeaux from St. Emilion, with soft sour cherry fruit and notes of balsamic, toothsome tannins. There is an earthiness to it that kind of takes away from the elegance, but it opens well.
