Round, plummy wine from a St Emilion off-shoot. Very deep garnet red with exotic, tarry, spicy notes. Silky, ripe black fruit, good body, very finely integrated tannins. Youthful and supple, no awkward edges.

65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet franc
We are absolutely delighted to invite you to discover this very high quality, relatively inexpensive wine from one of Bordeaux’s leading winemakers Pascal Delbeck who, for twenty years, was responsible for the wines produced at Ausone for Ms Chalon-Dubois (co-owner until 1997) and continues to make the wine at neighbouring Ch Bélair, Ier Cru Classé St Emilion.
His new ventures are in Lalande-de-Pomerol and St-Georges St-Emilion, two appellations which offer very high quality wines at a fraction of the price of a Pomerol or St Emilion. They will benefit from further cellaring.
The appellation of Saint Georges Saint-Emilion is recognized for a long time as the most prestigious and the most confidential of the satellites of Saint-Emilion; the site benefits of an exceptional panorama and covers 14 hectares magnificently exposed on Southfacing, clay-limestones slopes and sands from Perigord.
