Due to extremely limited supply, there's a limit of 6 bottles per customer on this wine.

This is proper aged Bordeaux - light baked red fruit on the nose, with woody and cigar notes. On the palate it’s delicate, juicy and textured, with loads of leathery fruity complexity. One to sip and savour.

The vineyard is located north of the village of Saint-Émilion, near Pomerol. It’s right beside Château Figeac, one of Bordeaux’s most iconic (and expensive) wines.

Frédéric uses a higher proportion of Cabernet Franc (28%) than most Saint-Émilion wines. This results in a fresher, brighter style of Bordeaux. Medium and light-toasted barrels further enhance this style.

Not worth the price!

Nothing exceptional about this Grand Cru from a great year...the only reason I bought it as St. Emilion is never a 'go to' for me. Lacked depth and complexity for a €33 price tag.
