Tasting Notes

Jancis Robinson, April 2017, Score: 16.5

Very deep crimson. Sweet and perfumed. Very luscious with a hint of camembert! Much riper and lusher than the average St-Estèphe. Very dry end. Only on the end does the appellation impose itself. Drink 2024-2037

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.
