Saint Emilion Grand Cru "Shelby Co. Lmt" 2018 - Peaky Blinders
Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2018, bottled for the Shelby limited company, is a typical Saint-Emilion based on Merlot (61%) and Cabernet Franc (39%) .
The grapes come from a selection of plots owned by the Bardet family for a long time, great great-grandfather Jean Roy considered these to be his best plots. It is only 3 hectares and only 15 barrels were produced. The vines are 55 years old on average, the vinification is then carried out in concrete tanks before aging in the best oak barrels. This wine reveals an intense dark color, the nose has complex aromas of black fruit, licorice roots and spices. The palate is already very elegant with silky tannins but will age for many years to become even better. Once again the Bardet family has done an extraordinary job producing a wine of the highest level and respecting our enchanting planet.
