Chateau La Fleur Morange 'Mathilde' 2008 AC Saint-Emilion

Tasted 10.04.11 with Jean-Marc, Beata, Sara, Tom, et al. 13.5%. This is a top-drawer 'garage wine' from a small producer that consistently attracts 92+ Parker Points. We drank this very young - it needs at least another five years from this great vintage. Jean-Francois Julien (overseen by Roussillon winemaker Claude Gros) has produced a fine Merlot / Cabernet Franc blend (70:30) with mainly new oak. Still closed on the nose, with some hidden raspberry fruit but great length and elegance. Re-visit in 5 years! From 2015, 18.5/20
