SAINTAYME

2017 Grand Cru Saint Emilion

Grapes Merlot
Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Saint Emilion & Satellites
Village Saint Emilion
Classification Grand Cru

100% Merlot. The nose is relatively light. Saline and mixed summer berries. There is an elegant red fruit character on the palate. The oak (once used barrels) adds just a hint of richness, rounding off any hard edges. Crisp acidity and quite green tannins gives the wine a linear finish. Always excellent value for money. A great cellar filler. Rating: 88 L&S (Apr 2018)

Matured in 30% new oak. It has a well defined, cranberry and blackberry scented nose, very natural and elegant, the oak neatly intertwined with the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannin, but very well balanced and surfeit with charm. You could almost run away and drink this already! But for now, we should wait until at least Denis Durantou has bottled it. Drinking range: 2021 - 2032 Rating: 89-91 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (May 2018)

Made of 100% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Saintayme gives gorgeous black cherries, crushed blackberries and cinnamon stick notes with hints of rose hips and lavender. The palate is medium-bodied with great elegance and freshness, textured with soft tannins and finishing perfumed. Rating: 87-89 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, RobertParker.com (Apr 2018)

100% Merlot. Deep purplish crimson. Gorgeous spicy dark-fruited nose. Savoury and a little austere in fruit on the palate but finely textured. The tannins a touch dry on the finish. Drinking range: 2021 - 2027 Rating: 15.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2018)
