Tasted at the Château, the 2006 Les Asteries had a slightly mushroom-like bouquet that dissipates with time in the glass, soon replaced by attractive blackberry, bilberry, and mineral scents that have maintained fine precision over the last ten years. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet mulberry and red plum fruit, moderate weight in the mouth, though the finish feels a little smudged and has not aged quite as well as the Le Carré. Not bad, but personally I prefer more recent vintages. Tasted April 2016.
Les Asteries was the first of the micro-Cuvee wines in a 'Single Vineyard Series' based on the cotes that hug the town of Saint Emilion - the land of the Saint Emilion Grand Crus Classes. The vines survived the frost of 1956 and date back over eighty years. Prior to the purchase they were a component of Château Fonroque.
Les Asteries exhibits a fantastic mineral quality which is in keeping with a belt of terroir that passes through from Châteaux Belair, Canon, and Clos Fourtet. We named the wines Les Asteries after the hardest form of limestone - calcaire a asteries - on which the vineyard is situated. It is unlike any other wine that we make.
