Château Roudier Montagne Saint Émilon 2009, Bordeaux, France 

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $12. 
Ruby in color with a light burgundy/ brick rim.

Light nose of blueberries, cherries, red currants, earth, wet rocks, mint, tobacco, vegetables, wood and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, blueberries, cranberries, oak, earth, bitter herbs, spices, vegetables, pencil lead and black pepper.

Medium finish with round tannins and spices.

This a very easy drinking red wine from Saint Émilon. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.

Tangy and spicy, simple and earthy. This was a great vintage in Bordeaux, and this wine comes at a great price.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (1 hour). Tannins come in after 90 minutes in a decanter.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
