The subtle complexity of a fine wine from Saint-Émilion

The estate
Since the 16th century, the Château Le Prieuré vineyard has been cultivated in the heart of Saint-Émilion. Formerly a Premier Cru des Cordeliers, it was already renowned at the dawn of the 20th century. A Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Emilion since 1955, Château Le Prieuré reign over a beautiful vineyard made up of several islets of vines. The talented Pénélope Godefroy, oenologist and agricultural engineer, produces wines with a harmonious style that reveal the great complexity of the Saint-Emilion terroir.

The vineyard
The 6.24-hectare vineyard of Château Le Prieuré is planted on the limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion. The 19 plots of 45 year old vines are planted in clay-limestone soils and managed by means of organic viticulture certified by Ecocert since 2018.

The winemaking
Harvest from September 27 to October 7.

The ageing
40% new French oak barrels, 50% barrels of one previous wine, 10% barrels of two previous wines.

The blend

The tasting
Tasted en primeur, the Château Prieuré 2019 reveals a complex and subtle bouquet. The palate, full and fresh, is followed by a polished and persistent finish.
