Ch. Coutelin-Merville 2006 St. Estephe (Cru Bourgeois)

Another treasure of aged Bordeaux. This extremely well-situated Cru Bourgeois, near Haut-Marbuzet, made a classically robust St. Estèphe in the fine Médoc vintage of 2006, with a touch of cedary class to its potent nose.  In the midst of its secondary stage of development now, it should soften and improve for many years yet, though it is a compelling proposition for a restaurant list right now. 20% of the barriques are renewed each year, and the estate eschews all use of pesticides. (50% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cab. Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot)
