Château-Pipeau Saint Emilion 2013
Wine AdvocateAs usual, the 2013 Pipeau is a fruit-driven effort displaying an opaque ruby/purple color, no oak, but lots of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice and forest floor characteristics. Another sleeper of the vintage from this producer, this value-priced St. Emilion will drink well for 7-8 years.
Wine SpectatorThis has a warm fruitcake frame, with enough fleshy plum and cherry sauce flavors at the core for support. Friendly finish. Drink now through 2017. 4,800 cases made.
