AOP Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Château de Béchaud 2018

€640 Flacon de 10cl

This Saint-Emilion Château de Béchaud Grand Cru Classé is a real charmer with its beautiful deep colour and cherry red rim. The nose is exquisite, exuding aromas of undergrowth and fern, coupled with notes of forest fruits, like cherry, blackberry and raspberry. As for the palate, it reveals smooth, fleshy tannins and black fruits once again, leading into slightly peppery notes and a delicate touch of oak. This is a superb Saint-Emilion that will not disappoint.

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.
