Chateau de Saint Pey Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2015
Sorry, nope, nope, can’t be right. Can it? $20 Bordeaux...St. Emilion Grand Cru, to be exact, with 92-93 POINTS for $20? IT IS. We’re skipping all over the warehouse floor like kids on Christmas morning. We may be old Napa Valley locals, but we still go to France (always a couple days in Bordeaux minimum) at LEAST twice a year --- DIGGING. Digging and tasting and sampling and swirling and BAM!! Here you go -- amazing!!
Got some? Sweet. You’re gonna love this, we are sure…
Sommeliers International did a very nice piece on the winery HERE -- check it out. Hey, we’re not going to argue with a roomful of somms! We loved it back in March when we bought it! This gem just landed in our warehouse last week, SUCH a lovely, packed and rich St. Emilion --- wow! For $20?? Dark and perfumey, it’s like diving into a pool full of red fruits -- plums, pomegranate, toasted spice, nice mineral feel and whiffs of blackberry jam. 2015 is very fine vintage -- we do sincerely hope you can snag as much of this as you can!
