Description

Situated in the Unesco Heritage village of St Christophe des Bardes, St Emilion, where Paul and Cedric are committed to tireless work in the vineyard, with the utmost attention to detail to achieve healthy, perfectly ripe fruit. Gentle extraction techniques are used,yet the wines achieve a deep colour, have excellent body and structure. Typically it is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. aging takes place in 80% new and 20% one year old barrels for 12 months.

Smells

gorgeous aromas of chocolate, dark berry compote, liquorice, cedar, blackcurrants, subtle oak nuances and a dusting of cinnamon and other exotic spices.

Tastes

A very structural wine with excellent concentration, red and dark fruit flavours, a crushed herb nuance giving freshness and excitement to the palate. Wonderful texture and mouthcoating tannins that linger, leaving you salivating and longing for more. A stunning example St Emilion and highlighting the virtues of the 2016. This is a must have for the cellar, still very primary and will age for 10years+, if you can resist drinking it.
