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

Bordeaux experts are already proclaiming 2016 as the ‘vintage of the century’, quelle surprise. But this is seriously good - it’s showing a bit more age but still retains a lovely freshness and vibrancy.

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 (19%) than most Saint-Émilion wines. This results in a fresher, brighter style of Bordeaux. Medium and light-toasted barrels further enhance this style.
