2019 Saint-Emilion, Cuvée Peaky Blinders

The 2019 Saint-Emilion bottled in order of the Shelby Company limited is a blend of Merlot for 72%, Cabernet f*****g Franc for 22% and the rest is Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are grown on soils of sands and rocky aggregates around the old port of Saint-Emilion. The vinfication is done in concrete tanks in order to protect all the freshness of the fruit. The wine has a dark and intense color, like Thomas Shelby look, a nose of expressive blackcurrant and other blackfruits. The palate is tough and powerful like Arthur Shelby but also silky like Polly Shelby. It respects the entire Shelby family and the environment, it has the high environmental value label. It is not only a very good wine ready to age a bit but it will also be a collector for wine lovers and Peaky Blinders fans.

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.
