Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, June 2011
Smooth, opulent with tannins firmly buried in the sweet acidity. Black plum juice flavors go with the ripe fruits and just a touch of spice.

The biggest production cuvee from creative/innovative proprietor and wine producer Jonathan Malthus, Teyssier can make as much as 15,000 cases. It is a property on the wrong side of the road, so to speak, in St.-Emilion, near another overachiever, Monbousquet. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 Teyssier has a dense purple color, a big, sweet kiss of black fruits, licorice, earth and oak, medium to full body, generous flesh and moderately sweet tannins as well as a hint of toasty oak. It should drink nicely for 7-10 years.

A blend of 85% Merlot and 18-20% Cabernet Franc This has a quite strict bouquet with blackberry, briary and a touch of gravel on the nose. Good delineation. The palate has a firm, tannic entry; quite masculine but nicely... A blend of 85% Merlot and 18-20% Cabernet Franc This has a quite strict bouquet with blackberry, briary and a touch of gravel on the nose. Good delineation. The palate has a firm, tannic entry; quite masculine but nicely defined on the blackberry, slightly tertiary finish thanks to the Cabernet Franc.

An elegant, high-toned style, with violet and incense aromas leading the way, followed by more suave blackberry and black cherry sauce notes. SIlky and pure, with subtle length on the finish. -J.M.

Teyssier, The home property of Jonathan Maltus is produced from 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Licorice, dark berries, medium body and soft textured dark fruit are found in this wine.

Some berry and fresh herb character, with medium body and medium chewy tannins. Slightly hollow center palate but very attractive.

Very dark crimson. Exceptionally sweet with a sprinkle of sawdust on the end. Broad, chocolate-coated mulberries on the palate - so much sweeter than most! But in general there is good tannin management. Rather luscious.

Part of the new wave of modern-style wines from the superb portfolio of Jonathan Maltus, the Teyssier is the entry level offering. The vinification is more akin to Burgundy than Bordeaux, which allows the pristine fruit to shine through. Indian spice and cedar aromatics lead into a palate of blackberry liqueur, pepper and clove. Medium weighted, text book lead pencil and tobacco follow through to the medium tannic finish. Drink on release and over the following ten years.
