Château Cap d'Or St Georges St Emilion
"Saint-Georges Saint-Emilion - the most secret and magical treasure of the right bank."
Geographically speaking, Saint-Georges Saint-Emilion is right next to the most famous plateau of the right bank. The Barbanne spring separates the two – the same natural boundary that separates Pomerol from Saint-Emilion. The clay and limestone terroir extends over the ridges that excite and inspire connoisseurs. Saint Georges’s heritage dates back to Roman times, when it became recognised for strong character and humbleness, a wine maker’s soil whose secret lives on. The result is Bordeaux’s most secretive appellation, with just 190 hectares and 20 producers.
From the terrace of Cap Saint George, we oversee the estate’s 19-hectare vineyard. The south-facing vines are planted in perfect alignment, running right up to the stone walls that surround them. The wines are vinified according to the principles that they hold dear: manual harvesting is followed by a transfer into vats using gravity. The temperature is raised gently, never exceeding 27˚C so as to extract a maximum of aromas without going too far. Creativity pushes them to pursue even greater results as the vintages pass, through constant testing and improving.
"This is nicely pitched in terms of richness and ripeness, showing depth and freshness. A hallmark of this great vintage. Aromas and flavors of red and dark cherries with floral and fresh, berry pastry notes. There’s a lot to like here. Drink or hold." 92 pts, James Suckling
