Saintem 2016, St Emilion Grand Cru
Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): 100% Merlot
Wine Region: Bordeaux, France
Tasting Notes: Lovely aromas of blackberries and blueberries combine with hints of crushed violets. This Grand-Cru from the St Emilion appellation is a medium bodied wine made from 100% Merlot grapes. The palate offers layers of black fruit and black tea flavours with chewy tannins and a savoury finish. It’s complex, elegant, and powerful.
