The dense, well-built finish has a lurking mineral accent that should emerge with cellaring. Best from 2015 through 2022. 200 cases made." Mar 2013
Wired For Wine: One sip of this Chateau Haut La Grace Dieu Saint-Emilion Grand Cru and you are going to want to get your French ON winelovers! The heady style is perfect for an amuse-bouche of pre-loaded, warm spoonfuls of righteously comforting cassoulet. Whether you open this wine and enjoy it young now, or wait a few years, this combination will wake your taste buds and leave them wanting more. Think hearty and meaty, and don't forget the game options... We love the sturdy feel of this Saint-Emilion with a classic dish of duck confit over potato-leek ragout. Another famously French choice is Filet de Bouef a la Bordelaise, or roasted beef tenderloin with red wine and marrow sauce. This dish will really show off the darker, earthy side of this Bordeaux Grand Cru. If you have access to game birds, then we say try a bottle or two with roast squab and a porcini and country bread salad. The bread salad is roasted in the oven along with the birds, and is absolument delectable... By the time the main course is over, your diners will be firmly rooted in their seats, eagerly anticipating the next course. Be prepared. We suggest a ripe Camembert to put the finishing touch on your evening of decadent francophilia. Was the meal a hit? Mais bien sur baby!
