This wine is made with 100% Merlot and aged in Demi-Muids-barrels with a capacity of 500 liters. 2012 was quite an atypical year for Bordeaux as many of the wines exhibit highly variable degrees of maturity. However, this young wine is beautifully crafted, clear with floral aromas, spicy, and quite fruity.
The vineyards of our Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2012 lie in a terroir characterized by fine soil rich in clay, sand, and limestone. The Merlot ripens relatively early and loves clay, sun, and the dry heat of sand. These factors contribute to this wine’s wonderful balance of sugar and acidity.
