New vintage 2021 Grand Cru St Emilion, and incredibly held at the same price as the prior vintage.

Chateau Vielle Tour la Rose has been owned by the Ybert family for more than four generations. The estate covers ten hectares covering three different appellations: Saint-Emillion Grand Cru, Saint-Emillion and Pomerol.

The average age of the vines is over 40 years.  The wines are fermented in concrete and stainless steel vats and then aged in French oak barrels (33% new, and the remainder in one and two seasons old).

80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. Drink from now but can be aged for 5 to 10 years.

The result of a textbook vintage, this wine expresses all the finesse and elegance of an outstanding terroir. A beautiful crimson red of brooding intensity. The elegant nose  evocative of blackberry, black cherry and beautifully ripened Merlot is underpinned by
harmonious oak and toasty notes. The palate has the creamy unctuousness typical of this exceptional terroir and crunchy tannins wrapped in velvet-smooth but fresh extract. Superb balance with a complex, lingering back-of-palate – a wine which is just begging
to be tasted with veined cheese over a meal with friends.

Bordeaux makes mostly red wines, and is the ancestral home of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The sub regions are driven by soil types, those on the 'Left Bank' featuring bold Cabernet based blends from stony-gravel soils. The Right bank produces more supple Merlot based blends from clay & limestone. From easy drinking everyday wines to some of the most exclusive wines in the world.
