Chateau Puy-Blanquet St Emilion Grand Cru 2010

The internet did not yield a large haul of information on this wine.  On tasting, I suspected it as a merlot dominant blend, with a splodge of cabernet franc, and its appellation requires more or less that combination so it won’t be far wrong.  The wine’s a deep intensity ruby in colour, and has aromatics of tobacco, dark plums and earth, and is quite savoury in impression.  The palate has firmish tannins and acid, and perhaps a touch of bitterness, and flavours that remind of savoury dark plums and tobacco.  Slightly rustic, this wine has a balanced expression of savoury fruit and power that is quite typical for St Emilion wines around this price point.  I enjoy this style of wine, and would happily stock up on it.
