This Private Reserve Saint-Emilion was crafted exclusively for you by Christian Moueix, the man behind iconic Château Pétrus, a legendary red from Bordeaux's Right Bank whose 2010 commands nearly $4,000 a bottle. Already a winemaking legend, Christian has also been named Decanter "Man of the Year" – and thanks to our long friendship, today you can enjoy a rare taste of his winemaking talent at a very attractive price.
This barrel-aged, Merlot-rich red is crafted from premium fruit grown in top-sited vineyards (much of which comes from the Moueix family's own estate). It displays the hallmark elegance and purity of the world-famous Saint-Emilion region and the concentrated flavors of the excellent 2010 vintage, which produced "rich, powerful wines … with an extra bit of everything.” (Decanter)
In the glass, you can look forward to a seductive, smoky, red berry bouquet with layers dark fruit framed by toasty oak and fine-grained tannins. Christian makes the most famous Merlot in the world – and this is a beautifully smooth, well-structured expression of Saint-Emilion's classic grape. Decant at least an hour before serving, and pair with hearty red meat dishes. Drinking deliciously already (a hallmark of the vintage), it will continue to evolve nicely over the next decade with careful cellaring.
Given the high demand for top-notch 2010s, early orders of this Private Reserve are highly recommended.
We have very limited cases – first come, first served.
