St.emilion Grand Cru 2014

Grape Variety: 
70% Merlot 30% Cabernet Franc
Tasting Note: 
Jonathan Maltus, maker of cult wine "Le Dôme", marries the long tradition of Saint-Emilion viticulture with best of modern, fine winemaking. This wine has a deep purple colour and shows dense fruit on the nose with beautiful blackcurrant, plum, raspberry, vanilla, liquorice going onto reveal earthy notes. The palate is soft with good concentration and a long, ripe finish. Made in the cellars of Château Teyssier, Destieux Berger is predominantly Merlot, bringing richness and roundness; the Cabernet Fran adds elegance and grip. Aged in oak for 12 months, the result is an approachable, rich, smooth and sensual wine.
