Chateau de la Reverence St Emilion Grand Cru 2012
A rich Merlot and Cabernet Franc blend.
The vintage is dense in color, retaining a purplish-blue hint typical of wines that are slow to develop. Chewy and rich, with dried fruits and fresh herbs. Full and chewy.
Region: St Emilion, Bordeaux
Grapes: 50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Franc
The majority of the production is carried out by hand with as little human intervention as possible. The small vineyard plots are planted with Merlot, and Cabernet Franc predominates where you find sandy topsoil with clay subsoil. They work in harmony here like a quality male and female duet, think Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, not some glorified karaoke singers off the X-Factor!
