Bordeaux’s storied Saint-Emilion produces some of the world’s finest, Merlot-based wines. (No wonder preeminent critic Robert Parker calls it “Bordeaux’s most exciting region.”) If you’re a fan of classic Bordeaux reds, then you simply must taste this boutique 2016 Grand Cru.

The Countant family have owned Château La Fagnouse since 1920. Located in the hillside village of Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse, the family’s vineyard is very environmentally friendly, adhering to the strict “Environmental Management System of Bordeaux Wine.” And thanks to the fantastic growing season—“2016 is the third outstanding vintage in a row for Bordeaux,” writes expert James Suckling—the 40-year-old vines yielded grapes with ripe, concentrated flavors.

Marrying Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2016 release is a traditional Bordeaux in every sense. Look forward to earthy spice aromas, supported by ripe plum, cherry, and strawberry notes. Elegant and structured, the wine will really shine alongside food. Decant an hour or two before serving (key to softening the firm tannins and opening up those complex aromas), then pair with roasted red meats, dark-meat poultry, or savory vegetarian dishes.

Drinking beautifully now, this 2016 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru is ready to make a statement on your dinner table. Order your share today.
