Château Le Puy, "Emilien" 2016
Merlot-Cabernet Blend｜Bordeaux, France
A truly wonderful, one-of-a-kind Bordeaux masterpiece from the amazing 2016 Bordeaux vintage.
Luscious, fleshy red cherry seamlessly intermingle with rose petals, black tea, licorice, and fresh-tilled earth for a wonderful Bordeaux to enjoy now, or even tuck into your cellar to allow it to evolve for another decade. Delicate, ethereal, highly perfumed, and subtle, this is organic, natural Bordeaux for the lover of rare, terroir-driven wine that whispers, not screams.
Château Le Puy can be considered an "O.G." natural estate found on the "Right Bank" of Bordeaux, near other superstar properties in Pomerol and Saint-Émilion. Family-run since their founding in 1610, Château Le Puy has been organically farmed with biodynamic influences since its founding, never using any artificial chemicals, herbicides, pesticides – all-natural, for over four centuries.
True to its geography, this cuvée "Emilien" is meant to to evoke a Saint-Émilion-style blend of mostly Merlot with a generous helping of Cabernet Sauvignon and a splash of the rare, local Carmenère.
