Notes of blackberry and black cherry show through the bouquet. The tannins are silky, coated with great finesse. The finish with black fruit aromas (blackberry, blackcurrant) is long and spicy.

L’avis de notre expert
A vintage full of finesse
"Think of dishes in sauce such as beef bourguignon or goulash to accompany this wine. A delight!"
2012 was a rainy year with a high risk of late blight development. However, the soils were able to absorb enough water to avoid stagnant humidity, which is conducive to this fungus. The vine's vegetative cycle was late which also delayed the harvest. The end of the sunny summer allowed the berries to acquire beautiful aromas, resulting in a good vintage.
Beautiful garnet color robe

One finds aromas of ripe black fruits balanced by a light spicy note. The tannins are silky and delicate.

Le Château Saint Robert
Château Saint-Robert is located in Pujols-sur-Ciron, 45km from Bordeaux. The Ciron, which flows a few kilometers from the property, favors the formation of morning mists in autumn. The estate is close to the prestigious Crus Classés de Barsac (Château Climens and Château Coutet), and not far from the Grands Crus of Pessac Léognan.
