Château Puy-Blanquet St Émilion Grand Cru 2012

The 2012 is a sound wine from Château Puy-Blanquet in Saint Émilion.  It’s a blend of 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc, and has relatively simple aromatics of redcurrant and tobacco.  The palate continues the theme and is a pleasant rather complex example of a merlot dominant Saint-Émilion.   The 2010 (reviewed here) has greater interest.
