Vieux Chateau Saint Andre Montagne-saint-emilion Bordeaux Blend Merlot Cabernet Franc
$276.63 / case(12)
Approximately 1 000 cases of the 2013 vieux chateau certan (versus the normal 4 000 cases) were produced. Alexandre thienpont told me that yields were 22 hectoliters per hectare and the final blend was unusual in that it was 92% merlot and 8% cabernet franc. The alcohol was a surprisingly lofty 13%. While charming tasty and elegant this wine does not possess the depth fat or texture of a great vintage. The tropical september that spawned botrytis throughout bordeaux vineyards had to be cut out and the result was a ridiculously small crop that cost a fortune to produce but will never sell for a high price since it is a good rather than exceptional wine. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. – *87-88/100 robert parker the wine advocate *86-88/100 stephen tanzer international wine cellar
