Château Le Puy Emilien 2018

REGION Bordeaux France 

GRAPE Merlot ,Cabernet Sauvignon

ALC 13%

Emilien is legendary in the natural wine world, a wine made with minimal intervention and no sulphur in perhaps France's most traditional and conservative viticultural regions. It's powerful and structured with touches of pot pourri, concentrated red and black fruits, graphite like minerality and savoury depth on the very long finish.

MORE INFORMATION

Château Le Puy has been in the Amoreau family since 1610 and overlooks the Dordogne River, on the same geological plateau as Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. There are 50 hectares of vines spread across 3 plots with soils made of clay, limestone and silica and all vineyard work follows biodynamics. The estate is now run by Jean-Pierre and his son Pascal who carry on the family tradition of natural fermentation and long ageing in old barrels, crafting wines of finesse, purity and outstanding ageing potential.
