Tasting Note:

David Suire has resurrected this magnificent estate in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, with a string of highly impressive wines. The 2021 is another excellent example from this high-flying St Emilion. Produced from 99% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc from very old vines (more than 50 years old). Dark and seductive, notes of mulberry, cinnamon and liquorice mix with bright red berries. There’s a good core of black cherry, hedgerow fruit and crushed rocks. Intense and focussed, this finishes with smooth tannins and an array of salty minerals.
