2018 Château Godeau  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Black raspberries, licorice and flowers pop up nicely. This wine is silky, polished, elegant and fresh with sweet, ripe red fruits in the finish. I am no longer waiting for Godot -- it is here! 91-93 Pts

2010 Château Godeau  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

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

2009 Château Godeau  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

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.

2009 Godeau, 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc, comes from a 5.5 hectare property located not far from Tertre Roteboeuf and Troplong Mondot. Stephane Derenoncourt started consulting for the property in 2007. 2009 is their first success story. Darkly colored, this mineral filled wine offers spice, floral, black raspberry, chocolate, and licorice aromas. Supple in texture, this round wine ends with black cherry, anise, and cocoa flavors. The high quality and low price point make this is a property to watch. 91-94 Pts
