K&L Notes

The Puy Blanquet estate is owned by Madame Marcelle Jacquet, and sits on the eastern side of Saint Émilion. This area’s clay soils are mixed with limestone, imparting both concentration and perfume to the wines grown here. The wine is composed almost entirely of Merlot, with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon blended in. While K&L has long been a fan of this Château, the 2015 vintage was so outstanding we bought all we could. The 2015 is classic and food friendly, and appeals to a variety of palates. With a definite concentration of black and red berry fruit, the wine maintains elegant tannin and acidity structure to give it definition. The aromatics are stunning. Full and expressive violet, cassis, plum and anise dominate, and the layers of fruit, spice and earth notes are endless. Although it’s young, the beauty of the 2015 vintage is that the wines are open, balanced, and drinkable now. However, if this does make its way to your cellar it will certainly go the long haul.

    The nose on this wine is what instantly grabs you, dark fruit mixed with violets and rose petals. The tannins are fine and integrated and there's a finesse on the palate that moves all the way through to the finish. Puy-Blanquet has about fifty acres worth of grand cru St. Emilion fruit and they put every beautiful berry to work here in this wine. This is a knock-out value that should only taste better two years from now once the wine has softened further.
