Chateau Le Puy Emilien 2013 Imperial Magnum
$978.00 inc. GST
This is an exceedingly rare six-litre Imperial Magnum release – only one is made available to us per vintage, and it comes packaged in a bespoke wooden box. The ideal centrepiece for any cellar.
Tasting Note: This vintage was deemed stable enough during elevage to be bottled with zero sulphur. 85% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec, 1% Carmenere. A cooler vintage has worked in Le Puy’s favour, with crop levels down significantly but the resulting fruit very mild, delicate and earthy in expression. A fine perfumed nose of plums, mulberry, sandalwood, pot pourri and a range of exotic mushrooms. The palate is earthy, with rich tannins and a caressing, gentle finish. Shows Le Puy’s distinctive character to the full – there is simply nothing else like this blend being produced in Bordeaux today.
