Ch Saintayme St Emilion Grand Cru 2015 Ch Saintayme St Emilion Grand Cru 2015

Another winner from Denis Durantou of L'Eglise Clinet in Pomerol, this time from the section of the region called Saint Etienne de Lisse, home also to (much  more expensive) Valandraud and Ch Fleur Cardinale.  It's 100% Merlot aged in 30% new French oak with plenty of fruit and a plush, rich, texture.  This is excellent value.  Drink 2018-2030.

“The 2015 Saintayme is pure Merlot picked between 29 September and 9 October, cropped at 45 hl/ha and raised in 30% new oak. It has a gorgeous bouquet with blackberry and cranberry fruit, a touch of vanilla emanating from the new oak that is nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with good depth, a "solid" Saintayme, a pleasant chewiness with a feisty dark berry, licorice-tinged finish. This comes recommended.”Wine Advocate 90-92 points
