Château Du Puy 1998 - Côtes de Francs (Today Château Le Puy cuvée Emilien)

About the domain:

The estate has been owned by the Amoreau family since 1610! The estate sits atop the same rocky clay and limestone plateau as St-Emilion and Pomerol. The name "puy" means summit or podium.

This area draws its international popularity from a manga (Japanese therefore) which designates it as "The drops of God". Apart from that, the estate is a precursor in the field of integrated viticulture and respectful of the ecosystem.

Tasting notes and specificities of the 1998 vintage taken from the official website:

Deep garnet color with copper reflections.

The nose is fruity with very concentrated aromas of blackcurrant, musk and truffle.

The palate is round, full, with superb silky tannins, the structure is very tight, with aromas of roasted chestnuts.

A long end of the mouth, of a rare breadth and suave.

Exceptional wine to lay down, of great character, of great complexity.
