Near the village of Saint Laurent des Combes, in the Bordeaux Right Bank appellation of Saint–Émilion, Château Benitey’s 40-year-old Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon vines have roots deep in clay-sandy soils at the foot of a hill. The wine is aged in French oak barrels, opening to gorgeous aromas of red and black berries along with floral and stone notes. Elegant and structured, there is an admirable underlying minerality driving this wine through its finish.
