Clos des Menuts Saint Emilion 2015 375ml
The Rivière family has lived in Saint-Emilion since 1875, and today operates a vineyard of 25 hectares near the ramparts of Saint-Émilion, mainly west of the town. Located in the heart of Saint Emilion, the Clos des Menuts has medieval cellars monoliths at constant temperature of 12 °.The privileged location of the vineyards of Clos Menuts combined with the complexity of the soil and subsoil of the vineyard contribute greatly to the development of a unique wine. Everything is done by hand here for the 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc to produce the highest possible quality grapes. Recently, Philippe Riviere appealed to Stéphane Derenoncourt, world-renowned oenologist for the vinification of Clos Menuts.

Wine EnthusiastThis rich and dense wine shines with ripe Merlot, a product of the warm vintage. Dusty tannins, licorice and black-fruit flavors and plenty of spice from wood aging all contribute to the generally ripe effect of this generous wine. Drink from 2023.
Wine SpectatorLight-bodied and open-knit, with floral, savory, cherry and damson plum notes breezing through. A savory hint lingers longest on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 8,500 cases made.
