Château de la Nauve

AOC Saint-Emilion Red

Château de la Nauve lies 40 km from Bordeaux, in the north east of the Gironde, between the towns of Libourne and Castillon la Bataille. It was taken over by Michel Veyry in 1955, who expanded the vineyard from its original 4ha to 12 ha in 1975. 8ha now lie within the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Appellation. Since the mid-seventies, continuous work has been done to improve the winemaking facilities and the quality of the wine.

    TASTING NOTES

    Shot with ruby and garnet when observed in the glass. Fresh, fruity nose of black cherry, wild strawberry and blackcurrant, slightly menthol notes and a hint of spice. The palate is fresh and silky at first, gaining power thanks to fine, elegant tannins right up to the slightly peppery finish. A very round, fruity Saint-Emilion.

    TASTING NOTES

    A sustained ruby hue with deep purple tints, this wine promises richness. Its profound, expressive bouquet of overripe Merlot is redolent of jammy red fruit, blackcurrant, bramble fruit and red berries, with toasty notes evolving. The succulent palate is ample, smooth and full-bodied. A balanced wine, with plump tannins wrapped in chewy extract. A silky, supple wine that you will enjoy.

    AGEING

    To drink from 2016.

    TASTING NOTES

    The result of an outstanding vintage, this wine shows just how generous Merlot can be when grown in the ideal terroir. Crimson in colour, with a rich and powerful bouquet of black fruit verging on the inky and empyreumatic. The supple, generous palate displays crisp, juicy extract over an elegant tannin base. A Saint-Emilion harvested at perfect maturity, with crunchy fruit.

    AGEING

    A fresh and fruity wine which can be drunk young from 2017, or one of greater complexity for those who have the patience to wait a few more years.
