Tasting note Saintayme
Classic right bank-Bordeaux. Deep red hue. Nice complex of scent, with ripe blackberries, cherries and oak. The taste is powerful and round and develops a spicy structure with ripe tannin in the aftertaste. Young drunk excellent with powerful game dishes, after a few years of ripening delicious with fine dishes from the oven or roast beef. Shelf life up to 10 to 12 years after harvest.
Beautifully crafted, classic Saint-Émilion from a 9-hectare vineyard with 100% merlot grapes in Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse. The owner is the famous winemaker Denis Durantou who with his very exclusive Château L'Église Clinet, an even smaller vineyard of only 4.5 hectares, is one of the star winemakers of Pomerol. Château Saintayme does not have a privileged location in Pomerol, but is partly because of the quality of this beautiful red wine.
Durantou is a master at making a seductive style of wine with soft tannins in combination with ripe fruit tones. The aging in small oak barrels, of which 30% is renewed annually, adds extra complexity and the professional vinification of Durantou places the wine high in the rank of the grand cru's in Saint-Émilion.
Due to the round, mild taste, this beautiful red wine is also very tasty from a young age, but extra bottle ripening is rewarded with refined aromas and a silky texture. Saintayme is a beautiful and - given the quality and reputation of the winemaker - very affordable addition to the exclusive wine rack in your wine store. From now on very nice, optimal to drink from 6 to 10 years after the harvest.
