En Primeur – 6 x Petit Cantenac, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux 2020
Robust and inviting notes of dark, rich bramble fruit, ethereal graphite bristles through the undercurrent and a freshness akin to that of very, very recently crafted leather apparel which would have me questioning whether this really was a 2020 vintage barrel sample were the bottle not in my company.
The tannins grip your gums tighter than a toddler being left at nursery for the first time. This will be a wine of great poise, possibly even possessing pizzazz and penache to boot.
This glides across the palate with a gravitas which far outweighs its staggeringly reasonable asking price, now that’s not something you can say about any Bordeaux very often and it has me all aquiver with anticipation to try le Grand Vin.
93 points, Daniel Grigg
