This is a wine to buy because of the commitment of two of Burgundy’s greatest names: Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanée Conti. Organically farmed, Saint Augusta is a selection of the best cuvées of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Offering attractive aromas of ripe black cherries, nutmeg and clove. The robe is rich and dark with chewy fruit. Everything is seamless and this is one of the best buys.
Fresh and lively with peach, pear and rocky mineral scents, the palate is layered with conference pear, green apple, white blossom, a touch of soft spice and a mineral freshness. There is considerable concentration and structure alongside a delicious salty quality leading to a long and elegant finish. This extremely appealing wine would partner well with almost any seafood dish.
Skillfully blended by the team at first-growth Château Haut-Brion Clarendelle is a family of blended wines made from traditional Bordeaux grape varietals. Beautiful pale yellow colour. Very concentrated, round, rich, and wonderfully vivacious on the palate, with mineral overtones.
