Chateau Le Prieuré Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé 2006

This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé from Chateau Le Prieuré is a blend of 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc.  It’s an elegant style of Saint-Émilion, with aromatics of chocolate, plums, earth and stems.  The palate starts with shortish length but builds to medium length with air.  Some stemmy tannins show through with time too and add interest to typical flavours of plums, blackcurrant and earth.  This is a very balanced and elegant wine that is ready to drink now.
