AOP Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Château de Béchaud 2016

€520 Flacon de 10cl

This cherry red colored Saint-Emilion Grand Cru has an attractively fruity and powerful nose with a combination of blackberry and blackcurrant aromas and notes of roasted coffee beans. On the palate, the initial mouthfeel is supple with good fullness. After its very concentrated black fruit flavors come spices, notes of cocoa and a tannic and beautifully long finish.

Château de Bechaud is a family-run Bordeaux estate with an ideal location to the south-east of Saint-Emilion in Saint Laurent des Combes. On this terroir, the vines flourish on ancient sands and a sand-clay soil. The resulting wine is vivacious and fruity, characterized by roundness and fullness.
