Yves Beck – tasting Château l’Etampe 2019

Tasted on 05.05.2020 by Yves Beck

100% Merlot

This property belongs to Jade Vineyards and is advised by Jean-Claude and Jean-François Berrouet. Small 1.5ha vine whose soil consists of sandy-siliceous alluvium. Aging in barrels (50% new) for around 18 months. Dense garnet red color with purple hues. Complex and subtle bouquet combining freshness and maturity through notes of black berries, morello cherries and mint. Delicious and creamy attack. In the mouth the wine has body. It is well supported by its tannins which give it fullness while the structure ensures freshness. An elegant and balanced wine which has the necessary size to spend some time in the cellar. 2024-2034
