Beautifully vibrant, just-picked berry fruit aromas and flavours (redcurrants, raspberries), with a hint of raspberry leaf tea, that gives it a definite Bordeaux sense of place. It has such a beautiful, silky texture that it drinks really well on its own, and it would be the perfect accompaniment to grilled lamb or beef, or with most vegetarian dishes. Vintage in image may vary. Refer to wine facts below for current vintage.
Château Sainte-Marie is located in the middle of the prime wine-growing Entre-Deux-Mers area between the Dordogne and Garonne rivers. The ideally oriented plots stretch across two hills with perfect exposure to the sun on some of the highest land in the Gironde département.The fruit, whose amazing quality improves continuously, is picked from old vines, whose yield is carefully controlled, including a plot of more than a hundred-year-old Semillon and Merlot vines.
The distinctive inherent quality of Château Sainte-Marie wines results from the wide diversity of soils in which our vines are cultivated. The abundant variety of terroirs provides scope for selection that is worthy of very great wines. Our quest to enhance this variety led us to search beyond the geographical boundaries of the estate for satellite plots several kilometres apart.
