TASTING NOTES:


Wine Rating: RP 93 points
Drink by: N/A

Offering fragrant notes of forest floor, spring flower, lavender, creme de cassis, and a subtle touch of smoke. Broad, savory, rich and brilliantly executed, this wine can be drunk now.


Les Asteries was the first of the micro-Cuvee wines in JCP Maltus' '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. The wine is named Les Asteries after the hardest form of limestone - calcaire a asteries - on which the vineyard is situated. It is unlike any other wine in Maltus' portfolio.
