St. Emilion Grand Cru 2016 - Pavillon Taillefer
Catherine and Philippe own this 4.8ha biodynamic wonderland nestled on the right bank of the Dordogne river in St. Emilion. Estate had mostly old vines planted in the 1950s, so when the Cohens took ownership just before the 2006 harvest the potential to do something great was already there waiting for them. Pavillon de Taillefer is a 100% Merlot aged in French oak barrels. Candied notes of violets, blackberry, raspberry and vanilla. Medium bodied, soft and fine tannins.
