Undeniably one of Bordeaux’s unsung values, this family-run estate has remained under ownership of the Sublett family for the past 200 years. The estate’s 23ha of clay and limestone vineyards are positioned on south-facing gentle slopes along the western edge of Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion plateau.
This relatively unknown estate delivers serious and increasingly hard-to-find value from 2018, a vintage which is obviously now considered one of Bordeaux’s most outstanding vintages. Recently released from cellars deep beneath the Chateau, this 2018 vintage is already drinking beautifully. The wine underwent a long temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel followed by 12 months ageing in concrete vats, preserving freshness and purity. While made for early consumption, it can also be kept for many years. Brilliant red in color, this supple and elegant wine features fine integrated tannins, moderate acidity and a nose of red fruit along with blackcurrant, vanilla and spice, followed by well-rounded red and black fruit on the palate that delivers a long finish with fine tannins in the after taste.
