Only 20% of the Chateau de la Greniere is aged in old oak barrels whilst the remainder is aged in a mixture of steel and concrete vats. The result is a wonderfully fruit led style of claret that shows complex red fruit flavours, is generous and rounded on the palate and finishes with a lovely balance of power and finesse.
The history of this chateau dates back to the 17th century and they are generally considered one of the leading lights in the Saint-Emilion satellite of Lussac. The vineyards are farmed organicially with the utmost care being taken to promote soil health through various biodynamic practises. The vineyard is planted with a classic right bank mix of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.

2020 Chateau Saransot Dupre, Cru Bourgeois Superieurlistrac
Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac. Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness. Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'. High praise indeed!

2014 Chateau Saint-Pierre, 4ieme Cru Classe St.Julien
The 2014 vintage of this 'under the radar' Chateau is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Chateau Saint-Pierre is the smallest classed growth in Saint Julien but has a growing reputation for producing excellent, deeply coloured reds. It is part of the Chateau Gloria stable and often eclipses it's more illustrious stablemate in blind tastings. Prices are creeping up as their reputation grows but these beautifully made wines still represent good value.
