2012 Grand Cru Classé Saint Emilion

Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Saint Emilion & Satellites
Village Saint Emilion
Classification Grand Cru Classé

This name hardly appeals to most English-speaking people, but the wine itself is consistently well-made and a perennial sleeper of the vintage. The 2012, from this tiny 10-acre jewel of a vineyard on clay and limestone soils with a full southern exposure, is a blend of 80% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. Excellent minerality, crème de cassis and blueberry and raspberry fruit jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple wine. Medium to full-bodied, nicely textured and impressive, the finish is long, and the wine, sexy and delicious. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
91/100 (Apr 2015)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.

This unwinds pleasantly, with sleek, racy linzer torte and cherry notes lined with floral, blood orange and spice hints. Exhibits well-integrated grip, revealing just a slight hint of the vintage’s taut feel.
