Pierre Chanau St Emilion 2010‏

A Pierre Chanau Bordeaux purchased at Auchan Calais for around €6 on the way back from a holiday in the south of France in 2012

Pierre Chanau is Auchan's own label for wines. This St Emilion is a right-bank Bordeaux with a silver medal from concours de Bordeaux.

Plum fruit, earthiness and coffee grounds.

Good plum fruit, fresh acidity, some pepperiness and savouriness; good structural underpinnings and firm tannins on the finish.

Drinking nicely now, it will continue to improve for a few more years.

Textbook right-bank Merlot. Good.

Match with beef dishes.
