This cuvée is made from a one-hectare plot of old vine Merlot situated in the commune of Montagne-Saint-Emilion, one of the most beautiful terroirs of Bordeuax’s Right Bank, and it represents the purity of the grape variety.
Planted on sandy – clay soils in coversion to organic viticulture, the grapes are coming from 80 year old vines and are hand harvested and carefully selected.
The nose is very expressive with ripe raspberry, cherry and blackcurrants aromas with just a touch of vanilla, toast and cinnamon notes
Son of a warm vintage on the palate is well-structured, richly dense with silky and generous tannins and a touch of freshness.
Drink now but will give its best from 2022.
Rich red fruit flows on and on in this charming little wine. The oak maturation gives some layers of clove and leather. The full body and the ripe tannins make it a great wine to bring home for dinner. A harmonious blend of 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc vines that are over 20 years old... more »

The 2016 La Fleur d'Arthus reveals delicate kirsch, raspberry leaves and black cherry scents with hints of roses and new leather plus a touch of cigar box. Medium-bodied, soft, refreshing and elegantly styled, it has a lovely, quiet intensity and perfumed finish. 92 points Robert Parker... more »
Medium bodied with a sweet plum and cherry character, the wine is soft, forward, and easy to drink, leaving with a blast of fresh, spicy black raspberries. Chateau Cap Saint George is much better with at least 2-4 years of aging in good vintages. Young vintages can be decanted for 1 hour or so.This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Cap Saint George offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 4-15 years of age after the vintage... more »
The Adams family, Americans, have done a magnificent job with this famous property on the south side of St.-Emilion. Now farmed organically, this wine exhibits an inky purple color, a gorgeous nose of blackberry and cassis fruit, sweet cherries, licorice and spice. It is full-bodied, ripe, opulent, pure and a great success in this vintage. The wine should drink well for 15 or more years. 93 points Wine Advocate... more »
