Tasting notes

This is a classic style of left-bank claret, predominantly Merlot with around a third of the blend being Cabernet Franc, which brings freshness and elegance.
A small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure to the softer Merlot fruit character. Supple tannins support flavours of blueberry and plum with a subtle note of smoky complexity and gentle spice. Ideal paired with red meat dishes or mature hard cheeses.

Expert reviews

"I always love working on blends with our producers. We're lucky enough to work with a range of excellent growers through one of the best co-ops in Bordeaux, resulting in this beautifully balanced wine. There's a level of complexity, with fresh blueberry and cranberry flavours overlaid with subtle spice and smokiness that elevates it above standard claret. Delicious!"

Perfect food match

 Toad in the hole with onion gravy with Waitrose Saint-Émilion

Toad in the hole with onion gravy

This dinner time favourite can be made simply by using pork sausages or for a more richer flavour try using venison or Tolouse sausages. Either way this Waitrose Saint-Émilion is perfect to match to these robust flavours.
