AOC Saint-Estèphe Red
Just a stone’s throw from Pauillac, Saint-Estèphe is one of the most southerly villages in the Upper Médoc region. It enjoys an exceptional situation on the banks of the Gironde. The vines are planted on a succession of low hills overlooking the river. The soils are generally well drained. The rugged topography makes these relatively elevated, gravel knolls composed of quartz and pebbles ideal for wine-growing. The wines are very powerful and richly tannic.
A very beautiful sustained garnet colour for this charming wine, which will seduce you with its expressive nose offering a wide aromatic palette with notes of red fruits, vanilla, tobacco, enhanced by a touch of undergrowth. Beautiful silky volume on the palate. The touch of Petit Verdot brings freshness and finesse to the tannins. A typical wine of the appellation, which combines charm, elegance and finesse. To be enjoyed with roast meats, poultry, game and cheeses.
It is drinking well now but will age well for the next 5 to 7 years.
