Drinking wonderfully now and at the perfect stage of maturity.
The Capdemourlins have owned property and made wine in St Emilion since the 16th Century. The property is 14 hectares on the northern slopes of St Emilion, largely with clay-limestone and sand soils. The blend is 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
What a wine - truffles, honey, cooked peaches and a lovely long, semi sweet palate. A fabulous example of a sweeter Vouvray. Wine available Mid May 2018. Contains Sulphites
Grenache comes to the fore, a super balance of fruit and spice. Fennel comes out with jammy red berries and spice. A lovely Chateauneuf du Pape from this great producer....
"Oyster shells, a little smoke and then lemon coming out. A nice, well balanced palate, good acidity, easy and with a hint of baked apple on the finish. Good"
