    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine is fermented the traditional way and aged in oak barrels, half of which are new each year. Balestard la Tonnelle is a full-bodied and exquisitely elegant wine, one of the finest grands crus in Saint-Émilion.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Big, ripe and rich in a way the reflects both the vintage and the new Bordeaux model, this bottling begins with a classic St. Emilion nose of ripe cherries, tobacco and roasted herbs and follows with like-minded flavors that show plenty of ripeness and extract. Supple in front and fairly tannic in back, it extends very well at finish...
