Sipping Fine Wine

The community of Saint-Estèphe has roots in the Gallo-Roman origins of this chateau. A blend of 60% Cab Sauv, 20% Merlot, 18% Cab Franc & 2% Petit Verdot, aged for 20 months in 100% new French oak. First time in a while there was some Cab Franc in the blend adding nice perfume to the berry, black fruit and cedar aromas. On the palate black berry, currant and plum flavors with cacao and oak notes. Big juicy tannins, a powerhouse that will age well. Long finish, good balance ending with great fruit and acidity balance. Outstanding!
