Half a dozen wines tasted from Montagne St Emilion and Lussac St Emilion in 2019 showed impressive fruit and structure. I was particularly struck by the quality of the de Boüard wines in Montagne St Emilion, Château Clos de Boüard and La Dame de Boüard. Chateau Messile-Aubert also showed finesse and had good texture. In Lussac St Emilion, Château de Barbe Blanche showed plenty of velvety fruit and felt pretty lush. Château La Rose Perrière was intense and spicy, and if it lacked finesse, it had plenty of enjoyable fruit. The following wines were tasted in London in June from samples sent by Le Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux and Château Angélus. Hope you find the notes useful.

The satellite appellations of St Emilion – Lussac, Puisseguin and Montagne – performed reasonably well when tasted blind at the Grand Cercle primeurs event held last month in St Emilion. In Lussac, Château de Barbe Blanche and Château La Rose Perrière were impressive, while Vieux Château Palon succeeded well in Montagne St Emilion in 2014. Château Guibot la Fourvielle in Puisseguin St Emilion is also impressive.
