Our Saint-Émilion 2017 is from one of the top Premier Grand Cru Classé properties of Saint-Émilion which is as good as it gets. The wine is predominantly merlot with a hint of cabernet franc from grapes grown on the best south facing slopes at the top of the Saint-Émilion plateau. As a result, it is forward and beginning to drink well already and will improve with a good 7-10 years ahead of it.
The wine has wonderful dark berry fruit flavours, angelic elegance with great structure and balance - a wine of enormous class. The château label fetches around £3,750 a case duty paid. Buy as much as you can afford... and for drinking now open the bottle an hour or so in advance or even better decant it.

The best of the nine wines bought in this delivery - lengthy and deep with good balance. Restrained multi-flavoured fruit. Will probably get better and better!
superb had to open another bottle after the first one went down so well
