84pointsChâteau Tour Saint-Germain 2012 Excellence (Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux)

Heavy wood aromas from new French oak barrels show equally strongly as dark chocolate flavors on the palate from this 50/50 Merlot/Malbec blend. The wine, tiny production from 2.5 acres, is all wood, very firm and tough. Only the acidity suggests a potential fruitiness. This estate has been in the Noël family since 1800. Roger Voss
