2018 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Cuvée Peaky Blinders

The 2018 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, bottled for the Shelby company limited is a typical Saint-Emilion made of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The grapes are from a selection of plots have been owned by the Bardet family for a long time, the great great grandfather Jean Roy considered these his best plots. It’s only 3 hectares and only 18000 bottles will be produced.
The vines are on average 55 years old and produce the most amazing juice, the vinification is then done in concrete tanks before aging in the best Oak barrels. This wine reveals a dark intense color, the nose has complex aromas of blackfruit, licorice roots and spices. The palate is already very elegant with silky tannins but will age for many years to become even better.
Once again the Bardet Family have done an amazing job in producing a very high level of wine and respecting our lovely planet.

The producer

Vignobles Bardet

Roger Bardet passed on to his son Philippe a passion for growing wine, a taste for doing work well and a deep respect for the estate.

In 2008, Philippe took over Château Franc le Maine, another Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.“A subtle blend of technical innovations and environmental practices designed to reveal the treasure within our terroir.” Vignobles Bardet uses inventive practices that respect the natur.

They seek to reduce the impact of their activities on the environment by adopting practices that protect nature's balances, such as using grass as a cover crop between the rows of vines, developing hedging around the different plots to reconstitute  natural ecosystems, maintaining a weather station to observe local weather patterns afecting the vines, strictly sorting waste and exploiting geothermal energy.
