Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2019
"As with previous vintages, the 2019 Saint-Émilion is an absolute bargain from The UCAA Gun Sale. A Merlot-based blend given style and structure by a dash of Cabernet Franc, it’s chock full of dark, plummy fruit and is delightfully soft, smooth, ripe and juicy. It’s drinking beautifully now but, as with the Saint-Estèphe, has the width and weight to get even better."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
Our Saint-Émilion 2019 hails from one of Saint-Émilion's Premier Cru Classés A (the top classification - equivalent to a first growth) and comes direct to us - and you - on the condition we don't name the château. From one of the great modern vintages, the wine is predominantly merlot with a dash of cabernet franc. Rich and concentrated with layers of mellow red berry fruits, and a very long lingering finish that is already delicious and approachable. A wine for the angels that will only get better.
A great opportunity for all of us to drink a very high class claret with an immaculate pedigree at a price that is approximately 1/10th of the château label. Highly recommended by us all.

What a wonderful Merlot. Logging on here to give you five stars, it was no surprise to discover that your 2019 is sold out. From the aroma when first pulling the cork, to feeling the smoothness on my palate, this is just a delight for Bordeaux Merlot lovers. I'll buy more bottles next time, to avoid disappointment when they inevitably too sell out.
