Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Premier Gr Cru Classe B
Alcohol 14,2 %
The estate has belonged to the Malet de Roquefort Family for more than five decades. The terroir is beautifully located on the slope (a bit lower than Ausone) and another part on the plain. The chateau had once been qualitatively irregular, but Stéphane Derenoncourt is now in charge of the vinification and the wine is ranked amongst the most beautiful wines of the appellation again. Since 2004, more cabernet franc is planted, which now takes 35% of the vineyard. This gives the wine more structure and complexity with a full expression of the terroir.
Wines in 'primeur' are wines that can be pre ordered, but which will not be delivered until the beginning of 2022. By buying them now, you will enjoy our advantageous price which is 10% to 15% lower than the price the wine will have upon delivery in 2022.
