Emilien is a lovely wine when drunk young but will have a lot more to say after a few years! More info

Emilien is a natural wine made by Château Le Puy and is an accomplished and complex blend of regional grape varieties. It boasts a garnet robe and a bouquet of ripe red fruits that evolves into tertiary aromas such as mushrooms and forest floor. Delicate and velvety, the complex flavours have a long finish. For those too impatient to wait, this wine can be enjoyed for its fruit in its youth but several years in the cellar will reward you handsomely.

Le Puy - Cuvée Emilien serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Bavette aux échalotes, Gratin de potimarron, Dinde aux marrons.

Peak: Drink until 2039

Information about domain Le Puy

The Amoreau family have been making wine since 1610, between Libourne and Bergerac. Château Le Puy is undoubtedly one of Bordeaux's most innovative estates; the vines are grown biodynamically, new wood has always been banned, and the producers use very little sulphur during production. Their cuvées are quite the opposite of standardised, with a pleasant rustic profile and an easy-drinking side that might be surprising for a Bordeaux. Such qualities have been roundly lauded since the 2003 vintage was called the best wine in the world by the famous Japanese manga comic ‘Les Gouttes de Dieu'. Here, originality is a family tradition, and they are even pushing for the creation of their own “Le Puy” appellation. One to watch!
