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.
Beautiful garnet colour with purple reflections. Elegant bouquet of blackberries and blackcurrant that reveals itself on swirling, with a vanilla and hint of toast which is the fruit of ageing in barrels of great origin.. The mouth offers a nice freshness. The Merlot tannins bring this roundness which are specific to the wines from Saint Emilion. This elegant structure coats the tannins without any roughness. To be enjoyed at a convivial meal or with family. This wine will offer great pleasure after a few years ageing in the cellar.
To be tasted as early as 2017. A wine that can be kept in the cellar for 10 years.
