Back in the Summer of 2006, i was blessed enough to be able to travel Overseas for 3 months and one of the stops me and my Attorney James ” Mick” Ingram made after a reputable recommendation from the “Bar a Vin” in the city center of Bordeaux, was Saint Emillion. Located on the right bank of Bordeaux, Saint Emillion is such a place of solace and purity. As we headed off the train and up a gravel road surrounded by majestic vineyards, clay and limestone, my Attorney and I proceeded to taste wines with such depth, balance, and pristine expressiveness you mine as well have labeled them ” The Nectar from The Gods.” Not to mention the best Merlot I have ever indulged in, Saint Emillion as well had some of the most expressive Cabernet Franc i have ever had the pleasure of being introduced to.
Such a shame that because of a certain movie; ( Not mentioning any names.) Merlot has gotten such a bad rap in the United States. Saint Emillion wines are some of my favorite wines ever! Keep Believing and Keep Drinking.
