Another micro-estate with production well under 500 cases, Les Asteries comes from another parcel of land close to Clos Fourtet with vines nearly 70 years old.
Les Asteries Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2010
“This formidable wine has loads of structure, an undeniable chalky minerality, big, rich blackberry and creme de cassis fruit, with hints of spring flowers, tar and licorice. Magnificent and pure, this is a killer example of St.-Emilion that is full-bodied and capable of lasting 25-30 years.” 2013 – 2043
