2018 Saintayme  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Luscious plum and licorice form the core of the wine. It is medium bodied, fresh, ripe, forward and easy to like with all its elegant, red cherry and plum charms. The wine is always made from 100% Merlot. Give it a few years of age and it will be even better. 89-91 Pts
