At a Glance

St  Estèphe is located in the  North of the  Médoc and is known for its powerful,  muscular red wines.  This small château is located at the region’s highest point on clay-limestone soils which account for the unusually high percentage of  Merlot in the blend.  Harvest is carried out by hand to ensure only the best grapes are selected.  Winemaking Fermentation occurs in thermoregulated cement vats for  21  days,  then the wine is aged in a  combination of old and new french oak for  18  months before release.

Grape Varieties: 50%  Merlot,  25%  Cabernet  Sauvignon,  22%  Cabernet  Franc,  3%  Petit  Verdot.

Tasting  Note: Drinking  at  its  peak,  the  wine  has  a  complex,  perfumed  nose  of  exotic  wild  berry  fruits  with  hints  of  tobacco  and  fresh  leather  complemented  by  integrated  French  oak  and  hints  of  roasted  meats.  A  supple  texture  with  soft,  resolved  tannins  and  great  balance.

Food Match: Delicious  with  roasted  game  such  as  venison  or  pheasant. 

Clousure: natural cork
