Château Saintayme is one of many small domains managed by Denis Durantou (l'Eglise Clinet
) according to his walk in the vineyards of Libourne. With this domaine, we are in the presence of a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
located in the municipality of Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse. The single vineyard is planted with a unique and particularly high quality rootstock, the riparia, associated with Merlot alone. The careful cultivation practices allow the vineyard an average age of 35 years. Worked as a garden, it produces less than 50 hectolitres per hectare. Here as elsewhere, Denis Durantou applies his know-how and methods that have made him one of the most influential men of the Right Bank. This wine has a nose of jam, a dense palate, blended tannins and a nice balance between elegance, structure and length. A very beautiful wine by Denis Durantou!
