TASTING NOTES: "Performing much better than it did from barrel, the 2004 La Confession has added significant weight and opulence over the last year. Young proprietor Jean-Philippe Janoueix has produced a fabulous effort for the vintage. Its dense plum/purple color is accompanied by a big, sweet perfume of creosote, blackberries, blueberries, truffles, licorice, and espresso roast. Opulent, rich, and full-bodied, this stunning St.-Emilion will drink well for 12-15 years." (06/07) According to Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of blueberry and violet. Suave and fine-grained but not overly sweet. Finishes with smooth tannins and a smoky quality."

Saint-Émilion

About Saint-Émilion

Saint-Émilion, an illustrious appellation on the right bank of the Dordogne River in Bordeaux, France, stands as a beacon of excellence in the world of red wines. This picturesque and historic region, with its diverse terroir and commitment to Merlot-centric blends, has carved its place as a revered destination for wine enthusiasts.

The terroir of Saint-Émilion is a mosaic of soils, including limestone, clay, and sand, contributing to the complexity that defines its wines. Merlot takes center stage in the blends, imparting a plush, velvety texture and an approachability that distinguishes these wines from their left bank counterparts. Cabernet Franc, with its structural elements and aromatic nuances, complements the Merlot, while Cabernet Sauvignon, though less prominent, adds further depth to select blends.

Saint-Émilion's unique classification system, periodically updated, designates estates as Premier Grand Cru Classé or Grand Cru Classé, providing a guide to the perceived quality and reputation of each property. Among the esteemed châteaux and estates, names like Château Cheval Blanc, Château Angélus, and Château Ausone shine as beacons of winemaking prowess.

The wines of Saint-Émilion are characterized by ripe fruit flavors—black cherry, plum, and occasional hints of chocolate. The supple mouthfeel, softer tannins, and overall approachability distinguish these wines, making them enjoyable in their youth. However, the finest examples from Saint-Émilion possess a remarkable aging potential, evolving gracefully with time and gaining complexity, offering a tapestry of tertiary characteristics.

Beyond its vinous treasures, Saint-Émilion boasts a charming medieval town and has earned UNESCO World Heritage status, adding to the region's allure. The wines of Saint-Émilion continue to captivate enthusiasts, their elegance and unique expression of the right bank terroir contributing to the enduring legacy of this esteemed Bordeaux appellation. Saint-Émilion, with its rich viticultural heritage, stands as a testament to the artistry of Merlot-driven blends and the timeless appeal of Bordeaux winemaking.
