Description

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru wines are produced under slightly tighter production restrictions than regular Saint-Émilion wines. As with other grand cru appellations, the intention behind this is to improve the quality, and to distinguish the area's finer wines from the more everyday wines.

Red Bordeaux Blends are known for their powerful structure and deep flavors. Dark fruits and berries such as plum and blackcurrant are commonly used to describe the flavors of red Bordeaux, although there is an unlimited range of terms that have been ascribed to them. Tannins tend to be relatively high in these wines, giving them a firm structure.

Tasting note: "The nose is fruity, concentrated and offers freshness as well as intensity / density. It reveals notes of fleshy boysenberry, crushed raspberry and small notes of almond / hazelnut, touches of cassis associated with discreet hints of tonka bean, spices and oak. The palate is fruity, mineral, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a slight mineral frame, a beautiful finesse, suavity, a small fat, a good dimension (width, depthness) as well as an acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh / juicy blackberry and small notes of cassis, wild raspberry, small crunchy berries associated with fine touches of tonka bean, wood, caramelization and spices. Tannins are fine and a bit firm. Small racy / saline minerality on the finish." - 93 - 94/100, VertdeVin
