Wine & Waters “Beautiful, red color in the glass with bright reflections. Soft, harmonious notes of red berries such as currants and raspberries on the nose. On the palate, it is supple with well-integrated tannins. The finish is silky and elegant.” (2017 vintage)
A small, exclusive winery that focuses on quality and exclusivity – in 2017 they produced only 14,400 bottles. This Grand Cru is made with an unusually high proportion of Cabernet Franc (45%) for this region – the other grape used is Merlot.
Saint-Émilion Grand Cru wines are produced under slightly tighter production restrictions than regular Saint-Émilion wines. As with other grand cru appellations, the intention behind this is to improve the quality, and to distinguish the area's finer wines from the more everyday wines.
A Bordeaux Blend is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot. In fact, the majority of Bordeaux Blend wines are often made exclusively from a blend of these two varieties. The remaining components are Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
