2011 Melka Majestique
Le Chatelet Vineyard
St. Emilion Grand Cru
The joy of making this wine in Philippe's homeland continues with an impressive 2011 vintage. the meticulous work in the vineyard and a much warmer trend during harvest helped the grapes achieve optimum ripeness. This full bodied wine from this robust vintage reveals a deeply colored and superb blend with aromas of rich cocoa nibs, dark cherries and an undeniable minerality; followed with layered mouthfeel of dark fruit and seamless tannins. This wine can be enjoyed over the following 20+ years.
2011 Melka Majestique
Paderewski Vineyard
Paso Robles
This wine marks the first Syrah ever to be produced by Melka Wines. After searching for a vineyard that meets the high standards needed to produce a Syrah of diistinction, the Paderewski Vineyard was selected. Rich in limestone, the resultant wine is dense, polished, round and elegant with aromas of dark fruit, black pepper, cedar and spice. This wine is all about finesse and length, finishing with long lasting aromas of berries and spice.
