2010 Les Astéries, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
Notes of spice and violet on the nose make this an enticing and attractive prospect. The palate is structurally austere, with well-defined tannins and an elegant acidity that lends both freshness and backbone. There is however good concentration and depth of fruit, with dark berry notes and a swathe of creamy oak. Long on the finish, this is a highly impressive wine.
“Another tiny production offering from proprietor Jonathan Maltus, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc is produced from a single vineyard situated near La Carre. The 2010 reveals notes of powdered rock as well as red and black fruits, moderately high tannin, good acidity and a fresh, lively, medium to full-bodied personality.” 91-94 Points, Robert Parker
