2015 Poesia, St-Emilion (Previously $45)

SKU #1332749 94 points James Suckling

 Aromas of currants, dried black tea and some cigar box. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Wet earth and dark fruits on the finish. A dense and long wine. Fascinating really. Try in 2021.  (2/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Poesia opens with gorgeous kirsch, black cherry compote and baked plums notes with hints of blueberry pie and spice box plus a touch of rose hip tea. Full-bodied, the palate delivers lovely savory layers that are well-framed by chewy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and layered. (LPB)  (4/2018)

K&L Notes

92 points from Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider: "Mineral driven on the nose and on the palate, this wine blends sweet, elegant, silky fruits with ripe tannins and good purity of fruit in the finish. The wine is structured to age and develop and will need some time in the bottle before it's fun to drink. From a blend of 30% Cabernet Franc and 70% Merlot, the wine is aging in 80% new, French oak barrels." (4/2016)

Do not confuse this beauty with the Argentinian Poesia. An April 2017 discovery at Barde Haut. Tons of fruit with some earthy, mineral aromas. Very ripe on the mid palate and soft,lush, lingering finish. Much better than their 2014. Decant one hour and enjoy.
Drink from 2018 to 2025

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.
