Château Caillou Les Martins
AOC Lussac Saint-Emilion Red
Beautiful, sustained ruby red. The fruity nose is somewhat restrained but opens when aerated to reveal elegant aromas of red fruit and spices with a hint of toastiness. The front-of-palate with its smooth, creamy tannins is counterbalanced by fine length and discreet, refined oak. A very feminine wine made with beautifully ripe Merlot.
To drink from 2014.
A beautiful, sustained garnet red, displaying jammy, sappy notes in a pleasingly elegant bouquet alongside the red berries so typical of this growth. The palate is distinctive, full of finesse and creamy extract with a well-balanced, moderately tannic base. The same great aromatic generosity is present in the lingering finish. A worthy successor to a long line of great wines, the Merlot expressing its full potential in this exceptional terroir, vinified with passionate dedication by Jean François Carrille.
Drink from 2016.
