The 2014 Les Asteries has retained those complex aromatics that I remarked upon during primeur. Now in bottle, it offers red and black fruit: kirsch, cranberry jus, incense and potpourri aromas that are nicely defined, perhaps a little more opulent compared directly against the 2014 Le Carré. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red cherry and strawberry interlaced with orange rind and a light tang of Seville orange marmalade, finishing with a marine-influenced, quite lightly finish.
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.
