2006 Melka Majestique
Le Chatelet Vineyard
St. Emilion Grand Cru
Barrel fermentations are instrumental to the integration and softness of the fruit resulting in a bouquet of crushed minerals, new saddle leather and bright cherry fruit.
This medium bodied, earthy St. Emilion boasts a round and supple texture with a nice spicy finish.
A charming wine that demonstrates good purity.

This is the inaugural vintage of our first ever-produced French wine that brings us back to
Philippe's roots in France. The vineyard is located on a beautiful site next to Beausejour Becot.
The soils of limestone and clay allow us to create a unique blend that will surely satisfy
the most discerning of French palates.
