Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2016, Score: 90-92

This 35 ha vineyard sitting between Ch Phélan Ségur and Ch Meyney compises 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. It is a superb example of the marriage between complex dark fruit flavours and structured substance that is so much the personality of the appellation of St Estèphe. Wine director Laurent Dufau and his team have crafted a stunning wine, with a striking damson sheen. On the nose it is beautifully scented, full of violets and hedgerow fruits. A wine of great harmony, with a refined tannic structure. Not an absolute power house, but with its delicious balance it will be a classical mature claret with age.

Region

St Estèphe, Red Bordeaux

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
