2016 Chateau Leconte Marquey, Saint-Emilion, Bdx

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.
