Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

saint-emilion

First introduced by the Romans, viticulture in Saint-Emilion started to expand from the 13th century onwards. Today, Saint-Emilion is one of the most celebrated wine regions in the world and in December 1999, was entered in the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru has more stringent conditions of production than basic St.Emilion, i.e., lower yields, minimum ageing of 17 months and bottling must take place within the Château.

Grand Cru Classé and Premier Grand Cru Classé result from an official classification based on regular tastings, and not only on price and reputation. The Merlot grape finds centre place in Saint-Emilion with later ripeners such as Cabernet Franc, and especially Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in warmer sites.

Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé A

chateau-figeac saint-emilion - Bordeaux Wine - Fine French wine by the case. Wedding Wine, Wine Gifts, Wine Delivery, Corporate Gifts, Retirement Gifts, Wine Offers.Château Figeac 2009

€199

Figeac has quite a warm gravel soil and this allows for a wider grape variety mix with only 30% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The wine profile is quite atypical for a Saint-Emilion, less full, leaner, but its unusual grape assemblage doesn’t make Figeac a “Médoc” in style. As with Cheval Blanc, Figeac offers a distinct character all of its own.

The 2009 is still youthful with fruit and oak vanillin gallore. Shows a vibrant massive frame of thick tannins that makes this terrific, deeply fruity and complex Figeac built for the very long term. Will improve.

chateau-cheval-blanc saint-emilion - Bordeaux Wine - Fine French wine by the case. Wedding Wine, Wine Gifts, Wine Delivery, Corporate Gifts, Retirement Gifts, Wine Offers.Château Cheval Blanc 2008

€410

Deep gravel in subsoil allows Cheval Blanc to make wine with at least 60% Cabernet Franc planted in the vineyard and 40% with Merlot. Racy, exotic, precise and bouncy; even textural on the nose: fur and glossy leather. Shows hints of sweet spices toasted bread and follow through with a palate evolution that is smooth, gently driven and framed by a finely grained, firm tannin. Popular tasting adjectives that translate well Cheval Blanc often are: fragrant; voluptuous; harmonious; elegant.
