Only 80 châteaux out of the 2500 in the Saint-Émilion (SANT EE-MIL-ee-on) AOC are able to designate their primary wines with the term Grand Cru. Château Pontet-Teyssier (Pon-TE TEY-si-air) Grand Cru’s 3-hectare (8.5 acre) vineyard produces all of the fruit for this finely crafted full bodied Bordeaux blend. Each cluster is individually hand-selected by the Oenologist (winemaker) during harvest.
The 2002 Saint-Émilion Grand Cru is a very dark red color with a deep violet reflection on the rim. The exceptionally expressive nose harmoniously combines woody and spicy aromas with dark plums and juicy red fruit. The elegant, balanced flavors completely fill and finesse the mouth. The oak is soft as are the tannins, a very complete and well-structured mouth carries on through the lengthy and balanced finish.
Aged for 18 months in Seguin Moreau oak casks. A classic Saint-Émilion Bordeaux blend comprised of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Try pairing with Boeuf Bourguignon recipe in the Adventure Package.
