"The 2020 Saint-Estèphe is perfect Sunday lunch fare. With enticing juicy fruit on the nose backed by typical Saint-Estèphe earthiness, it's a touch austere at first sip but the fruit soon elbows its way to the front, and by the second sip or gulp is there in spades."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
Our Saint-Estèphe 2020 is one of the stars of our declassified range. And it would be, given it’s from one of the Left Bank’s ‘super second’ châteaux. In other words, from a 2ème Cru château that achieves a 1er Cru level of quality (as the unofficial moniker suggests). Here is an exquisite claret with a lovely mineral backbone, showing the best of Cabernet in the blend – a claret ready to drink now or just as easily tucked away for several more years. It’s what a friend recently described as "class in a glass" – which is spot-on.
