A nearly unacceptable amount of time has passed since I had enjoyed a Bordeaux, so as my husband and I settled in to watch Doctor Who, I gave a pour to Château Saint-Michel Bordeaux Supérieur 2010. Rarely does it happen that I am unable to extract any information about a winery, however, Château Saint-Michel falls into that isolated category. Apparently there is a website “coming soon”, so until then I have to be content with the limited data found on the importer’s site, Serge Doré Selections. Founded in 1996, Serge Doré focuses on “authenticity, character and the purest expression of terroir”. They choose wines that reflect the land, soil, climate and people that made them, in order to acquire wines that represent “a time signature of a land and its people”.
Inky purple with red-violet highlights in colour, alluring aromas of red current, pink peppercorn and wisps of cedar radiated from the glass. Jammy flavours of blackberry, red current and cherry were balanced by smooth black tea tannins in the medium to full body. Spicy pink peppercorn merged with traces of rich vanilla in the lengthy finish. Concentrated and well balanced, this is an easy drinking glass fantastic on its own or with a meal.
