Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru Classe
Alcohol 13,0 %
The Despagne family bought the vineyard in 1812. It is currently François Despagne who is in charge of the policy. He belongs to the seventh generation. The 26.8 terroir is situated in the hamlet ‘Grand Corbin’ and has a clay-sand soil on ‘crasse de fer’. The planting contains ¾ merlot. In 2005 François Despagne started biological viticulture to have a very clear expression of the merlot: aromatic, fresh, ripe rather than overripe and heavy. This is for the wine lovers of precise and juicy St. Emilions.
