Ch Saintayme St-Emilion Grand Cru, 2005

003From the cellar: Unearthed yet another from the famous 05 stash.  It was lovely and a treat but also not thrilling.  Imagine a very, very good bottle of Merlot.  Then imagine paying for it, cellaring it, and opening it up half a decade later.  Expectations will probably run a little high.

 

Layered, yes, but not mysterious or wondrous.  Smoothed out with air.  A most appealing sipper and OK with dinner, if a touch one-dimensional for a grand-cru.

 

Price: No record.  Expensive.  When Bordeaux finally makes it to BC it’s rarely a budget item.

 

Market Liquidity: Lovely but maybe not worth the bother.
