Chateau Grand-Pey-Lescours St-Emilion Grand Cru is a Merlot dominated blend with Cabernet Franc to add complexity and structure. Mature bramble and cherry fruit , soft and smooth with real depth and good length.
Monsieur Bouldy, of Château Bellegrave fame in Pomerol has been looking after Château Grand-Pey-Lescours since the late 1980s. This 25 hectare Grand Cru is just outside of St. Emilion proper. Situated on clay-limestone soils, it is planted predominantly with Merlot and Cabernet Franc which are cultivated organically. If you are looking for the latest vintage of Bordeaux, you will need to look elsewhere, as Jean-Marie Bouldy, offers very little wine en primeur, instead waiting until he believes the wines are ready to drink. Grand-Pey-Lescours is arguably the definition of quality and value in Saint-Emilion - if not Bordeaux itself.
