Château Saintayme




St Emilion

Grape Variety:

Merlot Cabernet

Château Saintayme, St Émilion, 2017

Tasting Note:

Denis Durantou's 'entry level' wines, that is to say the wines not produced at his flagship Pomerol estate, Chateau L'Eglise Clinet always rank amongst our 'best value' buys. Saintayme, Chenade, Cruzelles and Montlandrie offer excellent value for money. Denis is quite rightly very proud of his 2017s, referring to them as a 'rare triplet' (with 2015 and 2016). Saintayme is a 100% Merlot cuvee from a 9 hectare plot. A charming bouquet of flowers, charcoal and blackcurrants. The mid-palate is dense and sweet with good robust tannins and a pure cassis finish. Sure to be a great value buy. 100% one year old barrels.
