The Saint-Emilion Grand Cru from Château Saint Valery is real treat - especially the 2010 vintage, one of the best ever in Bordeaux. Made of the best grapes of the vineyard and aged in French oak barrels, it is a complex Saint-Emilion. Flavours of black berries and spices dominate, together with hints of cocoa and liquorice. The finish is superb and calls for the next glass. Absolutely delicious today, it is definitely able to spend another several years in your cellar. It is rare to see such a quality in this price range! It is also available in magnum!

|What experts say|
"This 2010 has garnet hints and delivers a nose still dominated by the oak and its empyreumatic accents, the black fruits aromas then come-up in the glass. The palate has a touch of livelyhood and squared tannins, which call for 3 to 4 years in a cellar."
