Clos Cantenac, St. Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, France 2014
Regular price £51.90
6 hectares of vineyards – exceptional terroir – Grand Cru area
Covering 6 hectares of St. Emilion Grand Cru vineyards, Clos Cantenac benefits from an enviable terroir of deep gravel, sand and clay over limestone soils. Martin Krajewski (owner of Chateau de Sours), who purchased the vineyard in 2007, has found the perfect balance between experimenting with this intriguing variation in soil structures, while simultaneously respecting the history of the land. Martin and his team produce wines which do full justice to this prized terroir, highlighting why St. Emilion is one of the most desirable winemaking locations in the world.
Smooth, lush and succulent bright red fruit, plum and black cherry flavours that spread right across the mouth with an impressive intensity of character that is both elegant and generous in delivery. It is deceptively soft with good weight and just the right amount of dryness to counter balance the richness of the wine.
