  • What the experts say...

    Ce vin charmeur et caractéristique se distingue par sa belle robe et par son excellent fruité mûr de cassis et de prune. Très corsé, il déploie une finale très tannique. L'ensemble traduit bien le millésime, il présente en effet d'abondants tannins durs, un généreux fruité, savoureux et de bonne mâche, ainsi qu'une acidité extrêmement faible. (...)

    Cuvée presentation

    Located in Soutard, Saint-Emilion, these 20 hectares of vines thrive in the clay-chalk soil. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon is vinified by the talented Véronique Corporandy, who is also the wine maker at Château Soutard. The extraction process is not prolonged, just enough to obtain a good structure and firm tannins. 60% of the maturation is in new barrels, and 40% in barrels already used for one or more wines. Full-bodied, complex, and deliciously fruity, this wine has an ageing potential of 15 years. In terms of food pairings, this cuvée is perfect for serving alongside a braised shoulder of lamb or wild boar.
