The origins of this grand Cru de Saint-Émilion are the basis of its personality, the vines growing in plots of clay-limestone soil. Château Sanctus combines 70% Merlot grapes with 30% Cabernet Franc. Aged in new French oak barrels for 18 to 22 months, without racking, Sanctus wines benefit from a specific ageing process that make them hugely expressive.
The intense garnet appearance, fruity nose of black fruits developing into floral notes and velvety texture provide a powerfully elegant palate.
From vines grown in the clay soils of the hillsides of Saint-Émilion, these wines are aged in barrels for 12-16 months, with almost a third new wood each year. Combining 85% Merlot and 15% de Cabernet Franc, Château La Bienfaisance can be drunk young thanks to the full body from the strongly dominant Merlot. If laid down, it develops superbly.
Intense in colour, with red fruit aroma, the meaty palate is carried by the silky softness of the tannins to give a wine of sumptuous elegance.
