Chateau Pindefleurs Grand Cru St-Emilion 2016

West of Saint-Émilion, Château Pindefleur is a 17 hectare estate planted with 35-year-old Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines on a mix of gravel, clay and limestone. The owners believe in a balance between traditional and modernity resulting in a harmonious Saint Emilion, a fine flag-bearer. There is certainly power here, a sense of purpose, yet there is perfume and elegant refinement.

"Having tasted this Dior family-owned wine over many years, it was this 2016 offering, under Dominique LauretMestreguilhem, that finally made us put a toe in the water. 90% Merlot, usefully old vines (35 years) and a fine gravelled soil with some clay have combined to make a super wine in 2016. Profound ruby colour. The nose is darkly fruited, smoky, even sexily fruited. The palate is spicily rich with grainy tannins but avoids the rough trade element through plump, fresh fruit and judicious use of oak. Fine length as well."
