Prestige Wines from Saint Emilion

February 12, 2019

We have just received delivery of 2 new Prestige Wines that both originate from the legendary wine producing village of Saint Emilion in the Bordeaux region of France.

 

Both of these wines are from great vintages and at their ideal drinking age, so now is the perfect time to enjoy them.

 

Château Petit Faurie De Soutard - 2006

Grand Cru Classe

 

65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

The birth of Chateau Petit Faurie de Soutard dates back to 1851.

 

The wine is aged in 50% new French oak barrels for between 15 to 18 months, depending on the character and quality of the vintage Chateau.

 

Petit Faurie De Soutard should be decanted for 1 hour. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume.

 

It is best paired with all types of classic roasted, braised and grilled meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb duck, game and roast chicken

Les Tours Du Belcier - 2011

Grand Cru

 

72% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Chateau Bellefort Belcier dates back to the early 17th century. Les Tours De Belcier fermentation takes place in French oak barrels.

 

The wine is then aged for between 18 and 24 months in 80% new, French oak barrels before bottling.

 

At this time the 2011 vintage should be decanted for 1-2 hours to allow the wine to soften and open its perfume.

 

It is best paired with all types of classic roasted, braised and grilled classic meat dishes, and a range of hearty fish courses, like tuna.
