Deep black and red currant fruit intermixed with spice box, earth and background forest floor and graphite make for a medium to full-bodied, rich, supple-textured, delicious St.-Emilion to drink.


Les Asteries was the first of the micro-Cuvee wines in their '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.
