What makes this wine special

This is the modern version of a Saint Emillion Grand Cru, a wine without the heaviness and the dust that we usually encounter with this Appelation. Taking out the Cabernet Franc, which is normally used to structure the more aromatic Merlot seemed surprising. The result is a typical St Emillion, warm, velvety, smooth and round with a hint of oak - but lighter and fresher, much more digestible. We did not find any fault with this one. A real coup de coeur !

The story

Since 1920, Barreil Saint André has been harvesting wine on 5 ha of limestone clay soils. The vine is ca. 40 years of age.
Annual production is 20000 bottle /150 hectolitres.
