AOP Saint-Estèphe

Château Beau-Site 2016

€780 Flacon de 10cl

Here we bring you a garnet red wine with an orangey red rim and a forest-floor driven nose revealing notes of fern, vanilla and black fruit. On the palate, this Saint-Estèphe is a firm, full-bodied and very drinkable wine, with notes of oak, tobacco leaf and a hint of cocoa.

Winemaker

Philippe Castéja

At the northernmost point of the Haut-Médoc, the vines of the Sainte-Estèphe appellation cover a plateau overlooking the Gironde. Domaine de Beau-Site is among the oldest estates of this highly reputed wine-producing commune, and its vineyard slopes gently down towards the Gironde. The estate, which has belonged to the Borie-Manoux family since 1955, produces extremely well-made, classically elegant wines.
