2007 Melka Majestique
Le Chatelet Vineyard
St. Emilion Grand Cru

70% Merlot
30% Cabernet franc
100% barrel fermented

Our second vintage from this wonderful vineyard right next to Beausejour Becot, this full-bodied wine is a wonderful expression of this great terroir which expresses finesse and complexity.  After an extreme selection process, we feel that we have reached the perfect balance between cabernet franc and merlot.  The refined aromatics of black fruits, cassis and graphite are seductive and inviting.  This Grand Cru should cellar well for at least 10 years.
