2020 Château Edmus Phi by Edmus St. Émilion Bordeaux France Wine Tasting Note


2020 Château Edmus Phi by Edmus  (St. Émilion) 90

Made from 100% old vine Cabernet Franc from vines that are more than 40 years of age and vinified with no sulfites, this is going to be hard to find as only 25 cases were produced. All that being said, the medium-bodied, elegant, fresh wine kicks off with a strong bouquet of herbs, flowers, and ripe, red fruits. Elegant, energetic, and with a good sense of purity to the fruit, the wine leaves you with sweet, ripe, red cherries, raspberries, and a touch of licorice. This should drink well on release and have the ability to age and evolve into a more complex wine. 90-92 Pts

When to Drink Chateau Edmus, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Edmus is better with at least 2-4 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Chateau Edmus is best enjoyed in the first 4-12 years of life.

Young vintages can be decanted for up to 1 hour or so. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Serving Chateau Edmus with Wine, and Food Pairing Tips

Chateau Edmus is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. Chateau Edmus is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes.

Chateau Edmus is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta as well as cheese.
