Style of wines : Concentrated color. Legendary wine, the Saint-estèphe has a nose with fragrances of lilium (fleur de lys), black and red fruits, soft spices and violette. With age appear notes of game and undergrowth. In the mouth, harmonious, powerful and robust with fine and distinguised tannins, needing time to soften up, with a distinct and fresh finish. Excellent ageing potential.
