£111.00

Merlot, Cabernet Franc

A  lovely fresh and elegant modern Bordeaux  made by a self-confessed “crazy guy”. Toronto born winemaker Peter Kjeilberg trained at the University of Bordeaux followed by a spell at Ch. Haut Brion and then in 1997 he purchased 7ha. of land in St-Sulpice-de-Faleyrens next door to the famous Ch.Monbousquet. Along with his fellow winemaker wife Brigitte he proceeded to start from scratch and re-plant the whole vineyard. His wines have developed a cult following “across the pond” and we are very pleased to be his UK importer.  This 2016 Grand Cru St Emilion is Peter’s flagship wine and he believes it is the best wine that he has made so far. Total production of only 8,000 bottles, this wine spends 15 months in oak barrels and is just starting its drinking life now but not reaching its peak drinking point for a few years yet!
Vibrant, complex and with great depth and length.  Generous, juicy, ripe red and black fruits with harmonious tannins proudly shouting ” I am St Emilion Grand Cru”. A “leather armchair and cigar by the fire” sort of wine and a classic pairing with all things roasted.
Enjoy as a treat and support the “crazy Canadian” making wine in Bordeaux!
