This Saint-Emilion is an absolute treat with its subtle mixture of Merlot and Cabernet. L’Excellence Clos des Menuts is a well-balanced, fruity good keeping wine, with subtle tannins. Harmonious, it has a beautiful nose of ripe grapes, with an elegant touch of wood, red fruit and cherry aromas.
It goes marvellously well with all meats, game and cheese.
