Home to eleven generation of winemakers beginning in 1710, Chateau Saint-Sulpice sits regally at the threshold of Bordeaux and Saint Emilion. Each generation took lessons learned from the previous generation to keep perfecting and morphing the Saint-Sulpice reputation for fine wines. Its location allows for the production of truly remarkable and authentic wines worthy of Bordeaux.

Tasting Notes: Rich, indulgent and earthy. As if a damp rain has just passed, you can smell the earth crumbling between your fingers and a lingering nuttiness paired with dark, ripe stone fruits. The middle palate brings to play deep mocha notes with pressed cocoa nibs, almost cocoa dust. We’re talking robust, full of flavor and most definitely a wine to pair with rich red meats. Congratulations, you just found your new dinner party pairing.
