A fantasic wine from the most romantic St Estephe cru classe whose origins go back to roman times. The sandy gravel and iron enriched limestone terroir give rich, mineral flavours to this most impressive forward and approachable wine.

*This wine comes from a prestigious Chateau in the Saint-Estephe appellation which due to the nature of the wine must remain nameless. If you purchased this wine in their 'Grand Vin' label you would cost you several multiples of this per bottle. This is a real bargain at the price. 

Why do Chateaux declassify?
Well the reason is all about keeping the price of the “big wine” up, as all the Châteaux can produce more wine than they actually want to make available, so if (for example purposes only of course) Château Insert Famous House Name can make 10,000 cases a year they maybe only want to sell 6,000 cases a year at full price in order to keep the prices up through rarity. The excess production is then “declassified” to the lowest possible level for the production area then sold off at a fraction of the price under a basic merchant label in order to keep stock moving and free up storage space.
