Château Bernateau

AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Red

This property has been run from father to son by members of the Lavau family for more than two centuries. It is a well known name in Saint Emilion because several members of the family were jurats. The main building, the seat of this family estate, dates from 1854 ( engraved in stone ).

    TASTING NOTES

    Deep, beautiful, colour – an attractive garnet red. Elegant, fresh and fruity nose with notes of coffee and cocoa. Peppery, black-berried fruit aromas combine with toasty, roasted notes. Frank and chewy on the attack, the palate displays powerful, plump tannins which impart fine balance and great length to this wine. Excellent ageing potential.

    AGEING

    Will be ideal for drinking after 3 to 4 years in the bottle, and can be laid down for a good decade.
