The vineyards of Château Picoron sit in the little village of
Sainte-Colombe,high on south facing gentle sloping hills at the
edge of Saint Emilion.Our grapes’ feet reach deeply into a
unique terroir of limestone and clay, creating the perfect environment for our beautiful 100% Merlot wine. The grapes are
harvested at the optimum time when the fruit is perfectly ripe.
They are vinified in small separate thermoregulated inverse
trunconic vats to ensure that the fruit of each plot is vinified to
its unique individual characteristics. The wine is matured in
French oak barrels. The result is a premium boutique wine with
a production of only a few thousand cases each year.
This fine, perfumed wine is richly endowed with tannins
and black fruit. It has good concentration as well: ripe and
juicy, with its acidity and crisp texture in place. Drink from
116 in stock
Perfumed wood and black fruit aromas lead the way in this delicious wine. It’s
rich but still firm, with fine juicy fruit that will come through with time. Packed
with tannins, it will be ready to drink from 2021.
