Château de Côme, St-Estèphe, Bordeaux, France, 2014
(at Maison du Vin de St-Estèphe, 21 May 2018)
Drinking Window: 2019 - 2030
Baron Velge has kept this 7ha estate even though he sold Château Clauzet in 2017. It's a lovely 2014, a good value Cru Bourgeois in an earlier drinking style that's fleshier than some St-Estèphes. A deep waft of blueberry and blackberry on the enjoyable nose is accompanied on the palate by that classic brambly hedgerow feel that comes from Médoc tannins. This delivers flavour and personality without having to push it too much. 20% new oak.
