We tasted this at the Chateau in a line up of vintages and were hugely impressed with this 2013. As we all know this was a tricky year so it was great to understand from Chantal how she created such a cracking wine in this vintage. The secret lies in the heavy selection she made. As such this is a small release for her - as she sold off more than half the juice to a negociant - keeping only the top barrels for herself. She pressed the grapes very gently so as to ensure just the freshest, brightest juice was extracted and the results are great. She also adjusted the blend this year to help keep it soft and enticing - and the 80% Merlot with just 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc is brilliantly judged. This is a startlingly good wine, thoughtfully made and delicious to drink - don't be scared by the vintage! L&S (Jun 2017)

A well regarded 28ha property on the borders of St Georges-St Emilion owned by the Amart family since 1949 and run for the last 20 years by the charming Chantal. Michel Rolland advises.
A recent visit reminded us of the immense quality of the work she is doing here at this well placed family estate. As we stood in front of the winery looking out over her neighbours like Cheval Blanc, VCC and Chateau Petrus who are just over the Barbanne stream, it really brought home the outstanding position of her vineyards and when you taste this Merlot heavy Claret the quality is clear.
Tasting against far greater names this is a exceptional value - elegant, with a lovely weight of fruit - but high toned and very true - this hits all the high notes. A sadly all too rare bargain for this part of the world - this will not disappoint.
Vineyards are planted to 60% Merlot with 20% each of Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon.
