2000 Côte de Baleau, St-Emilion

SKU #1067323 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 From the Reiffers family, who are also responsible for two other up and coming St.-Emilions, Clos St.-Martin and Grandes Murailles, this is another outstanding wine. Deep purple-colored, it exhibits sweet cherry, plum, and currant aromas and flavors with subtle mineral and wood notes, excellent texture, medium to full body, and ripe tannin. The overall impression is a well-delineated, impeccably elegant wine with class and grace. Michel Rolland does the oenological consulting for all of the Reiffers' estates. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018.  (4/2003)

90 points Wine Spectator

 A pretty and refined red, with chocolate, berry and cherry character. Medium-bodied, with ripe tannins and a medium finish. Lovely red. Best after 2005.  (3/2003)

Additional Information:



- 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.


- 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.
