Tasting notes

An excellent-value, soft-textured Bordeaux from the Montagne Saint-Émilion region produced by the highly regarded négociant house of Dourthe. Flavours of ripe blueberry and blackberry fruit combine in this wine with savoury cedar notes to great effect.


With its attractive dark cherry colour, this Saint Émilion boasts an extremely expressive bouquet combining red fruits and spice with hints of forest floor. Round and supple on the palate, its firm body is underpinned by silky tannins. The wine is long and aromatic on the finish, with spicy notes.

Expert reviews

"I first discovered this wine on a trip to the region, in a tiny local restaurant near the vineyards. Now whenever I taste it I am transported back there, as for me this truly encapsulates the essence of great Bordeaux."

Perfect food match

Braised knuckle of veal with Dourthe Réserve, Montagne Saint-Émilion

Braised knuckle of veal

For something a bit different try using veal as an alternative to beef. The flavours are more delicate but are brilliant when slowly cooked. The silky smooth tannins of the this Saint-Émilion, immerse the tender veal knuckle and bring out the rich, meaty notes of the sauce. Serve with creamy mash and honey glazed carrots for a bit of sweetness.
