2008 Chateau de Lescours Saint Emilion Grand Cru Magnum $49.99*
Château de Lescours is located in the prestigious appellation of Saint-Emilion and was named after its first owner: Pey de Lascortz, squire of King Edouard III, who built this castle in 1341. Since its foundation, Château de Lescours has been one of the most well-known properties in the entire region. The castle is surrounded by deep moats; we could find fortifications in the courtyard to defend the lands from enemies coming from the Dordogne River.
Henri de Navarre (French King from 1589 to 1610) came to the Château de Lescours twice in 1582 and 1583 to find refuge. During the Renaissance period, Château de Lescours underwent transformations. However, a large part of the medieval castle has been destroyed, it still features two old towers from the 14th century. In the 19th century, vines were planted all around the castle. Since then, Château de Lescours has been producing red wines in the Saint-Emilion Great Growth Appellation. The Chariol family has owned the vineyard for 4 generations. Pierre Chariol has been the owner for 20 years, and he tries to keep the property within the family.
Winemaker Notes: Deep black fruits aromas on the nose and a touch of sweet cherries. On the palate, tenderness and softness come along. The end shows freshness and elegance.
80 % Merlot / 10 % Cabernet Sauvignon / 10 % Cabernet Franc
2008 Chateau Peyrabon Haut-Medoc $21.99*
Situated in the appellation of Haut-Medoc, Chateau Peyrabon is a cru bourgeois with a strong personality. Its current owner Patrick Bernard, of the wine merchant Millésima, fell under the spell of the charming 50 hectare estate of promising gravel terroir in 1998. Since then, M. Bernard and his team, led by Xavier Michelet, have been passionately dedicated to creating authentic wines that are elegant, silky, and marked by their freshness and fruity character – typical of an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winemaker Notes: Rock solid, with a gutsy frame of roasted apple wood and a full-bodied core of plum, boysenberry and black currant fruit. Dense and chewy, displaying spice-studded grip on the finish that courses along vivaciously.
