Empire Wine Best Value

"This property used to be owned by Stephan Asseo, a former St.-Emilion resident now living in Paso Robles and making the wines of LAventure. The 2009, a blend of 70% Merlot and the rest the two Cabernets, exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color and an elegant nose suggesting a confiture of red and black fruits, spice box, licorice, and a hint of mint. It is lush, rich in fruit, and a delicious wine to drink now and over the next 5-6 years. This wine, which is now made under consultation with Stephane Derenoncourt, clocks in at 14.7 % natural alcohol. (Tasted three times.)"

Customer Reviews

5/5 stars
Beautiful wine - Served this 2007 Domaine de Courteillac at a dinner party the other night. Paired it with perfectly roasted filet of Black Angus tenderloin, a penne pasta mushroom baked dish with Italian cheeses, sauteed baby carrots and simple salad greens. Courteillac is an elegant, balanced wine that you immediately know is Classic Bordeaux. Our guests really enjoyed it.
