750ml

Sweet and spicy red fruits with a distinctive, mineral driven character, this experience concludes pleasurably. The wine has the fruit and structure to age. The blend was made from 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc.

Wine Profile

Another St.-Emilion with a nicely fleshy core of red fruit that’s buttressed by firm yet ripe tannins, pretty acidity and a mineral-driven finish.

tasting notes

Blueberries, crushed violets, spice, and crushed rock notions all emerge from the 2017 Les Astéries, which is a tiny cuvée under the helm of the talented Jonathan Maltus. Coming from hard, dense, limestone soils (called Astéries) and very old vines, it’s rich, textured, and medium to full-bodied, with a straight, elegant style on the palate. It’s going to need short-term cellaring and drink nicely for a decade.
