EXQUISITE, ALLURING, ELEGANT - G D’ESTOURNEL 2019
MERLOT : 86% CABERNET SAUVIGNON : 13% CABERNET FRANC : 1%
Тhe vineyard saw more extreme weather conditions and less rain than Cos d’Estournel. Fortunately, the vineyard was able to compensate for climatic conditions thanks to the age of its vines and their roots, which forever dig deeper from one year to the next, light ploughing efforts—carried out more intensely than usual—and the fresh air brought by the nearby Gironde Estuary.
The 2019 vintage of G d’Estournel delivers vivacity and balance; it is at once fresh and rich, vigorous and discreet. Vibrant and highly spirited, with unmistakable notes of pepper, it is a long, silky wine, whose nose of blackcurrant and violet is highlighted by aromas of eucalyptus, thyme and rosemary.
