AOC Saint Georges Saint Emilion Red
This 2011 has all the characteristics of a wine for laying down. Deeply coloured, at the purple end of the scale. The nose delivers intense aromas of red fruit and blackcurrant, combined with elegant oak. The same intensity is found on the ample, persistent palate, which evolves to reveal tannins that are both dense and velvety. This vintage is set to gain in harmony and complexity in the years ahead.
Ready for drinking now, or in two to three years.
This 2012 is worth a detour for its crimson hue and its generous bouquet of red-berried fruit and spices, accompanied by roasted notes. The well-integrated, sustained attack gives way to a dense, ample and lingering palate of great freshness, underpinned by elegant and initially chewy tannins which evolve to impart fine length.
Will be at its best 3-4 years after vintage.
