Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru Classe
Alcohol 13,0 %
This property has a vineyard of 19ha. It was bought by the owners of Ch. Cheval Blanc, the Belgian Albert Frère and Mr. Bernard Arnault. The terroir (with gravel) has a microclimate because of its location at the Dordogne. The parcels are homogeneous and planted with the grape variety merlot with an age of 55 years old. In 2012 the cru was promoted to Grand Cru Classé. The work in the vineyard, the vinification and the further succession were done the same way and to the same severe demands of its older brother Ch. Cheval Blanc. A very good, expressive and complex wine for a very reasonable price.
