2012 Melka Majestique
Le Chatelet Vineyard
St. Emilion Grand Cru

This small production effort from Philippe's homeland has become a cherished member of our portfolio of wines. Imported by us and offered only to our loyal customers, this stunning wine has quickly become one of our favorites. With a truly unique nose full of bright cherry, plum and distinct varietal expression, this wine has a lovely soft entry with the Merlot while the Cabernet franc gives it its structure. The beauty in this wine is the balance and length of the finish with sweet lingering tannins. Recommended to decant. This wine can easily be enjoyed over the following 20+ years.

CABERNET FRANC

"Marking our seventh offering from Château Le Chatelet, this Grand Cru Classé is back to a more traditional style of Bordeaux with this exquisite vintage. This is a Bordeaux at its finest."
