- Closure: Cork
Notes from the producer:
This special cuvee has been crafted from a selection from four hectares of the estate with the finest chalky soils. The blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc has benefited from specific operations performed both during its vinification and its ageing. Upon completion of the alcoholic fermentation, the wines are transferred directly into new French oak barrels for their malolactic fermentation. They are subsequently aged in the wood for 18 to 22 months, without any racking. These practices give the Sanctus its remarkable mineral expression and its considerable cellaring potential. The deep garnet red colour precedes the rich nose of very ripe dark fruit, heralding the combination of powerfulness, complexity, breed and elegance on the palate.
This is a 7.5-acre garagiste estate carved out of the La Bienfaisance vineyard. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc that achieved 15.1% alcohol, it is remarkably fresh and well-balanced with excellent precision. A dark blue/purple color is followed by hints of chocolate, blackberries, cassis, new saddle leather and toasty oak. This full-bodied, opulent 2010 should drink well for 10-15 years. Drink: 2013 - 2026.
