Settle down Doris. 97 points? This is a very drinkable every day wine. Floral, spice, minerals and sour apple. $15 is a good price for this wine.

2015 Château la Bienfaisance Sanctus St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend
Winebar [4 Whts & 8 Reds] from 02/22/18 (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): From vines ave 40 yrs of age, planted to 70% Merlot & 30% C.F. in soils of clay & limestone mixed with iron deposits; Typically, malolactic & as much as 18 mos of aging occur in FR oak barrels (90% new); 3,458 cases made; A Stéphane Derenoncourt wine;

N: Closed; RIPE berries with notes of pyrazines, poss smoke?

P: Med body; RNDISH entry with NICE, ALMOST swtish frt met by an astringent pucker which pretty much resolves by the LONG, balanced, poss very, VERY slightly bitterish finish with a tangy/swtness to the surprisingly innocuous dusty tannins. Approachable now with food, this deserves cellaring through '19, then POSS making its 10th. My VG+/EXC-, quite arguably the higher based upon the QPR of this vendor's $22.95, which is $2 < the lower of wine-searcher's currently limited entries. 91-93 Falstaff Magazine, 90 pts WS, 89 ea Jeff Leve & Tim Atkin, 88-90 Vinous (Galloni), 85-87 WA, & 16/20 Jancis Robinson.
