Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Vieux Château Saint André rolls out of the glass with uncomplicated notions of baked plums, stewed cherries and underbrush plus a waft of black pepper. The medium-bodied palate has plenty of freshness to support the subtle black fruits, and it finishes a little chewy.

"Jean-Claude developed a friendship with the owner of a modest estate in Montagne, which sparked his decision to acquire four hectares of vineyards there. Naming his newfound property Vieux Château Saint André, he crafted his first vintage in 1978. His son, Jeff, entered the family enterprise in 2002 and currently oversees its operations. During his time, the estate has expanded from six hectares in 2002 to approximately 12 hectares today. With clay and limestone soil, the vineyard is predominantly planted with 85% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc.

Following conventional viticultural practices prevalent in the region, the vines are managed in a traditional manner. The estate ceased herbicide usage five or six years ago and is presently in the process of achieving the highest level of Haute Valeur Environnementale certification, a French accreditation that promotes eco-friendly methods."
