Chateau Leconte Marquey 2015, 75cl
Located in the village of Saint-Hippolyte, the Chateau Leconte Marquey is a small estate of just 14.5 hectares.
A great wine produced in Saint Emilion AOC. Owned and managed by Jean Paul Borderie. The property was taken over from his mother and a few hectares bought and expanded upon. Significant investent in both chateau and vineyard has brought about about improved quality in recent years.
This wine is assembled from 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the components see 12-15 months in oak barrels.
Merlot provides flavours of red and black berries, as well as roundness and opulence; Cabernet Franc is the epitome of finesse and elegance; and finally Cabernet Sauvignon, with its refined tannins, allows the wine to age gracefully. The tannins are soft and inviting, alowing this wine to pair wonderfully with hearty fayre and a fine cheese board.
A beautiful dinner table companion over the festive period.
