Chateau Teyssier 2012, St Emilion

Ch Teyssier is that Grand Gru which sounds posh but tastes for the masses. With a price tag that’s more expensive than your average bottle, it’s not a stratospheric sum that would veer your gaze away. It’s simple label is attractive to suggest superior quality. I also think it’s as French as it’s English owner. Majority merlot with a 30% splash of Cabernet Franc for flavour depth. It has a medium+ to dark ruby purple color. Lovely fresh youthful nose, aromas of cherry, dried herbs, blackberries, touch of baking spice. A medium-bodied wine with grippy tannins, it does drink very easily, fruit forward flavours, tastey crunchy berry and cherry fruit. Well-rounded slightly cinnamon spiced finish. Drink over the next 5 years. You can even get one at Costco, for $30+. 87.
