Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru Classe
Alcohol 13,0 %
This small but beautiful cru of 8ha belongs to Christian Dauriac and was promoted from Grand Cru to Grand Cru Classé in 2006 thanks to its repeated quality of many vintages. The terroir is a natural amphitheatre which exposes the grapes perfectly to the sun. The vines have an average age of 50 years which gives concentration to the wine. Mr. Dauriac is biologist and oenologist and refers to Michel Rolland for the vinification advice. The vineyard is situated in St. Hippolyte and the yields are kept very low (34hl/ha). It results in a powerful and round St. Emilion with a nice complexity in the ripe fruit.
