Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru Classe
Alcohol 13,0 %
This magnificent Grand Cru Classé of 12 ha is perfectly situated on the clay-lime slopes in the south of St. Emilion, next to Ch. Pavie and Ch. Larcis Ducasse. The vineyards benefit from the extreme sun-oriented location. The property changed owners several times the last few years. First it was in hands of the wine trader Dominique Hebard, then it came in hands of Chinese, after this the Cypriot John Renos had the ownership and in 2017 it went back in hands of the Chinese Peter Kwok (same owner of Ch. Haut Brisson and Ch. Tour St. Christophe). Jean-Christophe Meyrou, ex co-worker and manager of Vignobles Peré Vergé (le Gay & la Violette) now has the leadership and does this extremely well. The style has volume and roundness with a very nice acidity.
