2012 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru (Franc Lartigue, Chateau)

Chateau Leydet-Valentin, St. Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, France 2012

{sustainable} 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

FIRM BLACK PLUM & KIRSCH, PERIQUE TOBACCO & LEATHER, MOCHA

Bordeaux’s Saint-Émilion appellation has no shortage of fanfare surrounding it, and its cast of Grand Cru Classé offerings represents some of the most accessible and reliable yet varied vin that we’ll find throughout this sprawling segment of southwestern France. Chateau Franc Lartigue’s current contribution to the genre is practically a love letter to Merlot, brimming with elegant black fruit which is powerfully ripe, balanced, and structured. Flourishes of roasted cacao and espresso delicately seal the deal with sweet herbs and cured tobacco on the finish.

Serving Suggestion: Marbled ribeye medallions w/ braised radish & scallions. Grilled portobello caps w/ balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, & garlic.
