Medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and floral, with brightness and lift to the sweet red pit fruits on the nose and palate. The red fruits carry through to the finish with tobacco leaf and spice tones. The wine is always made from 100% Merlot. Give it a few years of age and it will be even better.
Emerging from the talents of Denis Durantou, the 100% Merlot 2018 Saintayme should be snatched up by readers who want a brilliant, delicious Bordeaux to enjoy over the coming decade. Terrific notes of black cherries, kirsch, flowery incense, cedarwood, and tobacco all define the bouquet, and it’s medium to full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with silky tannins and a ripe, hedonistic, yet balanced style that’s a joy to drink.
