2020 Château Badette  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Dark in color, the wine shows off its espresso, licorice, chocolate-covered black cherry and smoky perfume without hesitation. On the palate the wine is lush, rich, deep and polished, finishing with layers of velvety plums. The juicy, sweet, cherry liqueur finish really sticks with you. 92-94 Pts

2019 Château Badette  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Almost inky in color, initially you notice the toasty oak before moving to the array of spices, dark red pit fruits, licorice and oak. Full-bodied, fleshy, flashy, generous and lush, the finish is all the layers of avoirdupois mouth-filling ripe fruits and the oceanic tannins in the endnote. 92-94 Pts

Deeply colored, with an assertive nose of espresso, licorice, cocoa, black cherry and smoke, the wine is concentrated, full-bodied, ripe, round, opulent and fruity. There is lift, energy and length here on the palate along with loads of sweet, dark fruits, licorice, oak and chocolate in the voluptuous finish. The wine was made from blending 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. 94 Points

2016 Château Badette  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Located close to Troplong Mondot, this is a new player in the Saint Emilion hit parade. The new owners have a spare no expense attitude to produce the best wine possible and it shows. The wine is dark in color, intense, lush, powerful and silky. There is heft, but also freshness and the finish, with its dense layers of black fruit, licorice and earth leave a long impression. This still sells for a song for a wine of this quality. 93 Points

2015 Château Badette  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Truffle, cocoa, black cherry and earthy notes create the perfume. Made from 95% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, there is a bit too much oak, which might better integrate as the wine evolves. Still, this wine has fleshy, ripe, character-driven fruit and no sensation of heat, even though the wine reached 15% alcohol. 91-93 Pts
