A region named after the charming, quaint historical town in Bordeaux, St-Émilion is situated on the right bank of Bordeaux. Saint-Emilion's fame is due to its wines but also to its historical and cultural inheritance. The walled hilltop village of St.Emilion itself, which has survived almost untouched from the Middle Ages, was classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
St-Emilion's Merlot dominated wines are often less austere than their cousins of the Médoc region. Saint-Emilion wines are fully rich, fruity, elegant and velvety.
Le Château "La Rose Trimoulet", is an estate that has been in the family since 1836, is located almost a mile to the north of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion. It is a small estate of 5 hectares whose vineyard is split into three plots
Ageing Potential: 7-10 Years
This well known St. Emilion is matured in 100% new wood. Good savoury flavours, full bodied with a firm tannic structure. The wine is drinking very well now and would be delicious with rich roasts. A classy, long finish on this one.
