This Saint Emilion comes from a 9 hectare parcel of 35 year old Merlot vines in Saint Etienne de Lisse. 2023 is 100% Merlot.

The 2023 Saintayme is a deep, serious wine. There's a real core of inner strength here. Dark red fruit, cedar, spice and dried flowers open with some coaxing, but the 2023 impresses most with its overall poise. Pretty floral overtones add brightness. The 2023 is a very fine Saintayme. 91-93 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.

Medium intensity ruby, austere tannins on the opening, this has lemongrass and slate, juicy raspberry and grilled spice notes, slow and steady unrolling through the palate. Plenty to love. 92 Jane Anson.

The 2023 Saintayme is quite lush on the nose with black plum and light blueberry scents and fine purity. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly powdery texture, moderate weight and good balance. There's perhaps slightly less complexity on the finish compared to the 2022 at this stage last year. 89-91 Neal Martin.

Lovely freshness and balance with berries, orange peel and crushed stone. It's medium-bodied with nice, round tannins. Pure merlot. 92-93 James Suckling.
