Chateau Le Puy is “surely one of Bordeaux’s most overlooked estates” according to Decanter’s Jane Anson
94/100 – Jane Anson, Decanter
93/100 – Jeannie Cho Lee
“A great vintage for this biodynamic property – combining depth, focus and intense ripe tannins that are supple and fine. This will be one of the best vintages for Chateau Le Puy, like the 1982 and the 1986.” – Jeannie Cho Lee
“You have got to get hold of this brilliant value wine. Really, it has the most beautifully plump ripe fruit, practically bursting out of the glass but with excellent tension and balance. Utterly delicious, and my pick over the also excellent 2016. A low 30hl/ha yield in a relatively dry year – 593mm of rain overall at this spot, which is particularly low for Bordeaux. As with almost every vintage here, the blend is around 85% Merlot, with the rest a mix of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Carmenere.” – Jane Anson, Decanter
Tasting Note: Chateau le Puy Emilien 2015 is a garnet red, with small hints of ruby. The nose is fruity, with ripe red fruit aromas dominated by blackcurrant, accented with roasted almond notes and occasional hints of mushrooms and undergrowth. The palate is well-rounded, full-bodied and precise, with velvety tannins paving the way for a finish is long and enjoyably complex. A wine blessed with superb longevity, which will serve as a perfect partner for traditional rustic dishes and delicate, complex cuisine.
