Château Le Destrier - Cuvée Prestige
AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Red
The result of painstaking fermentation and careful barrel-ageing over 12 months, this 2012 is a sustained ruby red with deep purple tints heralding in a rich palate. Profound, expressive bouquet of ripe Merlot redolent of red fruit, blackcurrant and bramble fruit and red berries. Great presence on the palate, which is complex and multilayered. Ripe grapes, fine oak, distinguished, elegant tannins. Dominated by the Merlot Noir, this cuvee lends full expression to the complexity and elegance of its terroir. A wine with character.
To drink from 2015. A wine which can be kept in cellar 10 years.
