Montagne St. Emilion, Château Teyssier, 2016 - 750ml
Now managed by Antoine Darquey, wine production has taken place among the vineyards of Château Teyssier since the 15th century. Situated just a few kilometres northeast of St Emilion, the estate comprises 20 hectares of vines on clayey-limestone soils within the Montagne St Emilion appellation. In recent years, Antoine and his team have made a number of technological advancements that have enabled them to ensure grapes reach harvest time at optimal ripeness. And the results of these improvements are clear to see!
Merlot dominated blend, supported by a dose of Cabernet Sauvignon (12%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%). Aged in French oak barrels, it is a wine of real depth, with notes of smoke, liquorice and herbs all complementing the bright red stone fruits that burst from the glass. Lively acidity and a prominent tannin structure ensure a long finish that will have you going back for another glass!
