Famed for the quality of its wines since the 1st century, Saint Émilion is one of France’s oldest and most highly regarded winemaking regions. The distinct elegance and complexity of the wines produced there is in large part due to the appellation’s clay and limestone soils: the limestone provides elegance, structure, and mineralogy, while the clay brings depth, richness, and generosity.
The region’s unique soil structure and microclimate are expressed in the finished wine’s textural finesse and aromatic complexity. Vibrant ruby red, the intense, complex nose presents notes of cherry, strawberry, and light tobacco. The palate is powerful and inviting with smooth, silky tannins. A very satisfying expression of Merlot.
