Chateau Haut-Segottes Saint Emilion Grand Cru
Winter 2019 was abnormally mild, causing early budburst. While this phenomenon generally leads to a premature end to the season, including the harvest, the wine clock has recovered thanks to a cool spring. Bordeaux found itself on frost alert several times from the end of March to mid-May, with no damage for us. The next challenge that arose in the 2019 vintage was the heat (high temperatures) but the rain appeared at the right time, bringing freshness and energy to the grapes before the harvest.
Tasting notes: Wine dressed in a nice balance between the tannins of wine and wood, with aromas of ripe fruit. A racy, pleasant vintage with good aging potential.
Food & wine pairings: Red meat, game, cheese.
