The Saint-Emilion Grand Cru from Château Saint Valery is real treat. 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!

|What experts say|
|THE CAMBRIDGE WINE BLOGGER|
"Plump-yet-fresh black cherry and bramble fruit, pencil shavings and coffee; supple, inky texture with fine tannins. Harmonious and adept - a really lovely wine. Very Good."
1* "This wine 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." (previous vintage)
