Réserve personnelle 2013 - Mähler-Besse, AOC Saint Emilion

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

A fabulous garnet-red color and a nose that reminds of a woody and spicy high quality cigar box. But it’s in the mouth that this wine surprised me the most with its perfect balance between fruity and woody aromas that remain during the whole tasting experience, until its long finish. A wine specially found for you under the tittle “Réserve”. 

 

Terroir

Located in the Libournais, Saint-Emilion, also called the thousand castle’s hill, is considered as the one of the oldest winemaking areas in France. The vineyard is also classified as a World Heritage Site by Unesco. The vines, planted at the medieval city’s doorstep, occupy steep hillsides and extend to the plain of the “Graves”. These hills give the wines solid tannins and a real depth.

lecepage Grape variety

Representing almost 60% of the area planted in Bordeaux, Merlot is the star grape variety in Saint-Emilion where it flourishes on its fresh soils. It brings roundness, suppleness and elegance to the wine. It is not surprising that it made the fame of Petrus who uses it for more than 95% of its blend.

lemillesime Vintage

The secret of the Bordeaux 2013 vintage, sometimes criticized, is what we call a “winemaker vintage”. Indeed, nature was harsh, so if the general level was not as high as usual, a bunch of talented teams (including Malher-Besse’s of course) manged to do really deep and balanced wines. Taste it for yourself !  

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Founded in 1892, Mähler-Besse is a family trading house specialized in fine wines and located in the heart of Bordeaux. Since 1937, they carry the strong values of Cheval Noir. According to the legend, the shadow of a black horse is working in the vineyards to ensure, valiantly and elegantly, the quality and the success of each grape harvest.
