In the nose you find chocolate, coffee bean, savory herbs, smoke, licorice and black cherry liqueur. Lush, fruity, polished and with a nice touch of crushed stone on the mid-palate, you can drink this with pleasure on release, or age it. Drink from 2023-2038.

Deeply colored, the wine shows its dark cocoa, licorice, black plum and espresso core with little effort. Soft, round, elegant, silky, medium-bodied and fresh, this is going to be quite nice to enjoy over the next 12-15 years. 90-92 Pts

With its refined, medium-bodied character you are quickly able to dig into all of its layers of sweet, espresso tinged, polished, lush, ripe, dark red fruits. There is more than enough fruit and character to provide at least 15 years of pleasure. But, give it a year or two in the cellar for the oak to better integrate. Drink from 2023-2035.

Medium bodied with ripe black raspberries and crushed rock tones, the wine is soft, forward and should be pleasurable to drink with just a few years of age.

The first vintage for the new owners produced a wine made from 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, reaching 13.8% ABV. Cherry blossom, licorice and oak scents open to a wine of finesse ending with sweet red berries and a touch of oak in the finish. 89-91 Pts

Godeau is located not far from Tertre Roteboeuf and Troplong Mondot. Stephane Derenoncourt started consulting the property in 2007. 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc produce the blend. Deep ruby in color, with a licorice, mineral, floral and jammy black raspberry aromatic profile, the wine ends with a fleshy, ripe black plum filled finish. The wine will be aged in 33% new oak for 12 months. If prices remain low, this could be a strong value play in 2010. 90-92 Pts

Deep in color, the aromatics are filled with smoke, licorice, roasted black cherries and jam. From a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Fran, this supple and silky delicious Bordeaux is already showing well. 2009 Godeau remains one of the top value wines from St. Emilion in 2009. Sooner or later, word will get out on what a great value this offers. Godeau has stepped up the level of wine being produced at the property today thanks to the new owner who added Stephane Derenoncourt to his team.
