Chateau Clement Saint-Jean Cru Bourgeois Medoc, 2012

Chateau Clement Saint-Jean Cru Bourgeois Medoc, 2012

In a glowing review, one pro referred to this as Margaux-like. On my budget that’s about as good as it gets. However, despite the inviting ruby colour and evocative notes of berries it had (for me) a tad too much acidity; I couldn’t get as excited over this as some of the online hoopla led me to expect. It was very, very drinkable. But heck, it was a far cry from Margaux. It also needs another year or two lying down.

A little bit of everything you’d expect in a decent Medoc but nothing you’d expect in a great Medoc.

Price: $14 USD.

Market Liquidity: Half-mast.
