Producer : Château Tertre-Daugay
One of the final vintages under the name of this excellent château, this wine is not to be missed! Taking its name from the ‘Tertre du Guet’, the lookout in St Émilion used to notify villagers of danger, this estate has a storied history, and was eventually bought in 2011 by Château Haut-Brion. A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, from a mixture of vines (some as old as 100 years), this wine offers up a generous plum and licorice character, with hints of earth and chocolate, making it a smooth and easy wine to enjoy now.
Pairing suggestion: a sumptuous charcuterie spread, or any dark-flavoured dish that hinges on a salty-sweet balance.
