2016 Château du Parc  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 87

Ripe dark red fruits, jam, licorice and smoke aromas open the perfume. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, energetic, fruity and with a discernible oaky side to its character. I like the wine, but I would like it even more with a bit less wood.

Medium bodied and ripe with good fruit, there is too much oak to fruit in this vintage.

2011 Château du Parc  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 89

The true debut vintage for Alain Raynaud for this St. Emilion estate, which Raynaud purchased in 2010. Made from a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, with vines averaging 25 years of age, the wine opens with black pepper, earth, espresso, blackberry, red plum and blueberry aromas, this soft textured, medium bodied wine should offer pleasure early. The wine reached 13.5% alcohol. 88-90 Pts

2010 Château du Parc  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 87

Recently purchased by the consultant Alain Raynaud, while this is the official debut vintage for Raynaud, he did not begin to make the wines until the following year. Located not far from the sandy soils of Monbousquet, the wine offers good color, spice and black raspberries with a touch oak, medium/full body and the ability to be enjoyed on the young side.
