Chateau Bernateau sits on a limestone plateau with hillsides boasting incredible soil made of clay and limestone. They tap that rare terroir to produce a complex, racy Saint Emilion Grand Cru well worth a trip across the ocean. This is another big vintage with a big score, delivering huge blueberry and blackberry flavor in a rich and chocolatey body. Freshness, density, and unctuosity abound in this delicious Right Bank beauty.
This really pushes the envelope on ripeness and extraction, but manages to pull it off, thanks to the bright acidity and enormous vitality of the crushed-berry flavors. Long, rather firm finish. From organically grown grapes.
