CHATEAU HAUT-SAINT-CLAIR

Yannick et Andréa Le Menn

CHATEAU HAUT-SAINT-CLAIRThese likeable owners brood their vineyard of 6 ha crashed on croups and tray of argilo-calcareous structure and whose vines are 35 years old. The type of vines Merlot (65%), Cabernet franc (25%) and Cabernet-Sauvignon (10%) are associated with this soil argilo-limestone and meticulous care (stripping, grapes sorted before picking off, long macerations, breeding out of barrels, of which 1/3 is renewed each year…).
We are always at the top with their superb Puisseguin-Saint-Émilion 2016, a warm wine, dense, of distinguished mouth, very well full-bodied and balanced, fragrant (cherry, humus...), which combines aromatic concentration, fineness of the tannins and structure on the palate, with a delicious peppery finish.
The 2015, fleshy and oily, with a complex and subtle nose at the same time, dominated by the macerated cherry, with these persistent notes of smoke, ripe cherry and pepper on the palate, with ample tannins, a complete wine, also custard.
Taste their Moulin Saint-Clair 2016, fragrant, sturdy mouth, with hints of undergrowth and ripe cherry, ample mouth and fondue, a charming wine, that goes perfectly with grilled quails or spaghetti with bolognese.
