Why do we love this wine?
Saint-Émilion is famous for its deep and complex wines made from merlot and cabernet franc. If you are a red drinker that hasn’t dipped their toe into Bordeaux yet, this could be the wine to win you over. There’s the usual cocoa and mulberry, with ripe raspberry and musk notes lifting things up, lightening the nose. There’s lots more to like, too: a little licorice, a little earth, a touch of fresh sage, a squeeze of damson plum and a crush of orange - it’s all going on. And the palate, while it’s got the expected serious structure and good length, has more upfront fruit than you’d imagine. The result is a wine that’s as juicy as it is serious, wonderfully balanced, and accessible.
