Region: St-Emilion, Bordeaux
Producer: Vignobles Despagne-Rapin
Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Franc
Bottle Size: 75cl
Classical flavour of pencil lead, cedar and black fruits. There is something a bit like a Medoc wine that comes from the Cabernet Franc in the blend with Merlot but also undeniably charming and drinkable as St Emilion should be. Being organic makes it even better. It tastes so pure.
