2007 Pipeau, St-Emilion

SKU #1149186 Wine Spectator

 There's a nice color to this red, with aromas of flowers, perfume, red fruits and dark licorice. Full and layered, with loads of fruit, yet reserved and long. Turns slightly herbal, but it's juicy and delicious overall.  (3/2010)

K&L Notes

Pipeau is a Merlot-dominated Bordeaux from Saint-Emilion, full of boisterous berry and plum fruit with spice and anise flavors.

A great gift for the holidays, this Saint-Emilion Grand Cru is a fantastic choice for those interested in Bordeaux, and yet desiring something a bit more approachable than bigger Cabernet-based wines. Medium to full-bodied and with very bright fruit, the wine is gorgeously balanced with a lot of spice towards the end. Lovely!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
