Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru Classe
Alcohol 13,0 %
This top cru from St. Etienne-de-Lisse is in hands of Silvio Denz since 2005. Mr Denz is a Swiss perfumer and wine trader. He invested a big deal in this chateau with futuristic chai ‘La Cathédrale du Vin’, that was designed by the famous architect Mario Botta. Besides using the principles of gravity, the optical eye (for selection), the OXO rolling system (wheels on which the barrels can be returned without being moved) and a lot of other techniques are applied. These efforts and investments were rewarded in the new ranking of 2012: the cru was promoted from Grand Cru to Grand Cru Classé. The domain is advised by Michel Rolland. An exceptionally concentrated wine!
