|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. The palate of this attractive wine is ripe and soft. It has forward black currant fruits, very fresh acidity and just a touch of dusty dryness. It's going to be a delicious wine in the medium-term.
Wine SpectatorA fresh, floral style, with enticing pomegranate and cherry fruit, backed by a rooibos tea hint. Offers a silky, easygoing finish.
Wine AdvocateThe Château Teyssier 2014, which according to Jonathan Maltus is the biggest brand in Saint Emilion at 15,000 cases, comes from vines on the plain, mainly from 25-hectares on sandy soil adjacent to Monbousquet, and this year consists of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Matured in 20% new oak, there are red cherries and kirsch scents on the nose that is nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, simple but balanced with a little hardness towards the finish that should mellow throughout its élevage. This will drink well for 4 to 5 years.
