2008 Melka Majestique
Le Chatelet Vineyard
St. Emilion Grand Cru

70% Merlot
30% Cabernet franc

Our third vintage from this fabulous vineyard right next to Beausejour Becot, the 2008 exhibits ripe, black cherry and chocolate notes with the addition of spice favoring cloves and tobacco.  The entry of this wine is fluid and seamless showing exquisite balance and well integrated tannins.  The texture soft yet not linear, with multi-dimensional character.
