Saintayme 2005

82 points

St Emillion Grand Cru. 14%

Reeks of carpentry. Not sweet oak but raw. Plus green olives. Palate is the same, dominated by hard savoury green olives. Finish is mouth puckeringly tannic, raspy.

Will this ever come right? Or will this remain over-extracted devoid of lively sweet fruit?

2nd wine of L’Eglise Clinet
