Reviews

Very structured, yet the tannins are polished and poised, framing dark berries, minerals and a hint of cedar. Medium to full body and a long, creamy finish. Better than 2022? ~94-95 JS

The 2023 Château Cote De Baleau is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in 30% new barrels. It has a deeper ruby hueas well as gorgeous aromatics of cassis and ripe mulberries along with spring flowers, graphite, and a kiss of minerality. This medium-bodied, elegant, graceful Saint-Emilion has fine tannins, terrific balance, and outstanding length. It's clearly outstanding, if not a touch more. ~91-94 JD

The 2023 Côte de Baleau was picked September 14 to October 3 and matured in 25% new oak. It is very perfumed on the nose that oddly brings me toward a warm vintage Burgundy! Very pure and floral, it gains composure as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. Fresh and vibrant, this feels nicely focused with a citrus-fresh, graphite-tinged finish. Promising. ~90-92 NM-VM

The 2023 Côte de Baleau is a pretty rich wine this year, a Saint-Émilion that reflects the intensity of the vintage and the personality of clay-rich souls that confer textural breadth. Dark-toned fruit, mocha, incense, leather and pencil shavings are all amplified. Time in the glass brings out pretty floral top notes that add brightness. It will be interesting to see how this responds to élevage. Today, the 2023 is on the richer side for this cuvée. The blend is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Tasted three times. ~90-92 AG-VM

From the team behind Clos Fourtet, the 2023 Côte de Baleau offers up aromas of sweet cherries, berries and kirsch followed by a medium to full-bodied, polished and suave palate. It's a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. ~90-91 RP
