Beyond the Label
Velvety with red plum and cassis; touches of red cherry and spice
Opening a bottle from one of the finest properties in Bordeaux is a pleasure few of us can afford. L’Epiphanie gives you that chance at an affordable price too – a seductive, luscious fruit 2017 from one of just two Second Growth estates in the Haut-Médoc’s revered Saint Estèphe. Wines from here easily fetch £100 a bottle and two this century have already gained the perfect 100 Parker points. Our Bordeaux born Buyer, Jean-Marc Sauboua, was delighted to secure this fine red. Estate grown grapes, crafted by the same team in the same cellar – it was given a lighter touch of oak than the Grand Vin, which will make it an earlier drinker. Luscious cassis, plum and cherry with a hint of spice. Decant early or age in your cellar. A fine dinner red.
"A great claret from a superb, classed growth château – appealing now, will age magnificently"
