Saintayne St. Emilion Grand Cru is a sleeper!
"Winemaker Denis Durantou is world famous for making
the wines at Chateau L’Eglise Clinet in the historic Bordeaux
village: Pomerol. Those wines are VERY expensive wines that are in
The secret in the wine business is to find the “OTHER” wines someone
like that produces. I found them in April on my visit to Bordeaux.
We’ll have Three: Saintayne, Les Cruzelles & Montlandrie (All Case
2014 Saintayne tastes like it would sell for $40!!!
Tasted this in April at the Chateau... Has that wonderful dark
fruit with spice and dark cherries, along with an unmistakable
elegance only an expert Pomerol producer can be capable of
producing. I can’t wait to see these wines in 10 years…
$17.62 by the case is RIDICULOUS for this wine.
2014 is a GREAT Vintage...
And the wine critics agree:
93 Points - Wine Spectator
"A vibrant, briary spine runs through the core of crushed plum
and raspberry fruit. Subtle spice lines the finish, with the refined
structure making this sneakily long."
Great wine doesn''t have to cost a lot!
