Tasting Notes

High quality, value Bordeaux is one of the great pleasures in wine. Saint Martial is a fine St-Emilion estate located along the Dorgodne River. Originally founded by the Dupeyrat family, it is now run by Micheau Maillou and family, and comprised of just 3.7 hectares. Great care is taken in the vineyard, and many of the vines have some real age with an overall average of 45 years. Predominately Merlot with 20% Cabernet Franc, this is classic St-Emilion split between 1/3 new oak, 1/3 used, 1/3 third neutral vats. With just the right amount of age in the bottle this wine is both luscious and nuanced with plenty of purple-black fruit, gentle notes of spice, and the tannins are fully integrated making this a delightfully easy to drink Bordeaux now.

    Here’s a fantastic wine from the legendary 2009 vintage, that due to our direct import program, we can offer it to you for less than $30. No easy feat for this quality of Saint- Émilion. Bursting with ripe cherries, chocolate, and beautiful notes of violets. It offers the complexity of the 2009 vintage along with the approachability of an almost 10 year old wine.
