Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru
Alcohol 14,4 %
This very small production of Jonathan Maltus comes from the 1.5ha vineyard in the center on the hill of Saint Emilion between Château Clos Fourtet, Château Beauséjour Bécot and Château Canon. This terroir, called ‘Château Cure Bon’ before, was bought from Château Canon. It had the shape of a square, which explains its name. His first vintage in production was 2005. As there is no wine cellar here, the vinification and maturation is done at Château Teyssier, another château of the owner. The small production (only 300 crates a year) permits a very precise vinification, the vineyard can carefully be followed up, like a small kitchen garden. Le Carré is considered as a ‘garage wine’, which means a small, but very careful production, just like his other top wines Vieux Château Mazerat and Le Dôme.
