"Shows black licorice, black pepper and berries on the nose. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and ripe, chewy tannins, but in balance. This has very stylish flavors. Should be nice to drink soon. Always excellent value. Best after 2012"
A blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.
It is a wine with expressive fruit, an opulent nose of red berries, roundness on the palate, with good length and a harmonious and elegant finish. Chateau Pipeau is very delightful when young but it also has all the qualities for laying-down of a really great Saint-Emilion.
