Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2008 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color and soft berry fruit, with hints of cedar, vanilla and foresty, earthy notes. This medium-bodied 2008 displays outstanding fruit, impressive purity, and a nicely textured mouthfeel. Always made in an up-front and satisfying style, it should drink well (like most top vintages of Teyssier) for 7-10 years." (05/11)

Product Description:

Wine:
"The palate is incredibly pure, with bouquets of violets and black fruits."

"Wine has been made at the estate since the 1700's. At one stage in the nineteenth century it was the largest estate in the neighbourhood. At the time of purchase however it had been reduced to just five hectares of depleted vineyard."

"Since then a completely new team has transformed the wine and the estate. Renovation in every sense - estate, vineyard, winery, barrel cellar, and the fundamental approach to making wine means that Chateau Teyssier is widely regarded as a new-wave, modern-style wine from Saint Emilion. Most importantly the wine is now sought after by a loyal following."

"Eighty-five per cent Merlot with the remainder being met by Cabernet Franc, the wine originates from the communes of Saint Sulpice de Faleyrens and Vignonet. These communes provide terroir that produce a wine that may be attacked on release or laid down for a few years. The approach in winemaking, which has all the benefits of the modern equipment afforded by the more senior wines, is new world in style."

"Chateau Teyssier, is award winning, spicy, velvety, and ripe, but above all, pivots on its expression of fruit." - Winery
