Château Divon

AOC Saint Georges Saint Emilion Red

The origins of Château Divon date back to 1664. During the time of the monarchy, the property belonged to Château St-Georges, where the king came to receive the “dîme” (land tax). Owned by the Andrieu family, the estate has been handed down from generation to generation since the nineteenth century, in keeping with tradition. The small family estate of Château Divon has been owned by the Andrieu family since 1860. It lies 4 kilometres north of the village of Saint Emilion at the heart of the smallest appellation in the Libournais wine region, Saint George Saint Emilion, which is made up of a mere 21 growers and just under 180 hectares. Crafted with passion and determination by Damien Andrieu, this wine presents all the richness and expression typical of the Merlot grown in this exceptional terroir.

    VINTAGE 2011

    TASTING NOTES

    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.

    AGEING

    Ready for drinking now, or in two to three years.

    VINTAGE 2012

    TASTING NOTES

    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.

    AGEING

    Will be at its best 3-4 years after vintage.
