Chateau Cap d'Or AOC Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion Jean-Philippe Janoueix, 2016

Bordeaux

Producer

SEMAV

Grape Variety

Cabernet Franc

Saint-Georges is the smallest of the four Saint-Émilion satellite appellations. Its also one of the closest geographically and in terms of slope and elevation to Saint-Émilion, lying north of the town with the little Barbanne stream separating the two appellations. Cap d’Or, produced by Jean-Philippe Janoueix, has restrained red fruit aromas with raspberry and red cherry. It is more serious on the palate and is medium to full bodied. This is a structured wine with potential for maturation. A blend of 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc, vines are cultivated on south and south-west facing slopes originally cleared by the Romans, who named the site Cap Doro. It was matured in oak for 18 months using barrels from a combination of coopers – Demptos, Darnajou and Remond.
