Saint Emilion Sichel
AOC Saint-Emilion Red
Produced on one of France’s most prestigious terroirs, this wine is a beautiful deep ruby colour. The bewitchingly complex bouquet is a mixture of red and black-berried fruit (cherry, blackcurrant) and mild spices, highlighted by a touch of minerality. Following a firm, velvety attack, the palate is ample, round and smooth with a structure of elegant, plump tannins guaranteeing good ageing potential. Overall, a harmonious wine that combines power and elegance and bears the hallmark of its noble origins.
To drink from 2014
Made on the most prestigious terroirs of the Saint-Émilion appellation using traditional methods, this 2017 is a brilliant ruby, displaying an expressive bouquet in which red fruits (raspberry, jammy morello cherry) prevail, with a hint of blossom and spice. The smooth, subtle and elegant tannins loose none of their freshness and superb balance right to the finish. An excellent vintage for this wine, absolutely typical of its noble origins.
Ready for drinking after two years in the bottle and can be laid down for up to ten years.
