Château Saby Bordeaux Supérieur
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Château Saby is a small estate situated in Villegouge, and the Saby family brings these grapes over to Château Hauchat (AOC Fronsac, also under their ownership) for vinification.
- This is the Saby family’s “value” offering, an easy to drink and medium bodied wine that will charm you with its deepness and character.
Varietal Composition: 100% Merlot
Elaboration: Hand picked grapes, 12 months in a combination of used barrel and steel tank
Tasting Notes: The beautiful cherry red colour reminds us of garnets. The aroma of the preserved red fruits mixed with the hints of liquorice. The aromas of blackberries and blueberries create a softness and assured bouquet on our palate. It can be enjoyed with a fine cut of red meat or lamb. It provides the perfect match.
2015 – 90 James Suckling
The Saby family has been making wine in Bordeaux for nine uninterrupted generations now, led by heirs to the family passion Jean-Christophe and Jean-Phillippe. Their winery holdings, centered around Libourne, are comprised of 70 hectares and include Château Rozier (Saint Emilion Grand Cru), Château Bertin (Montagne-Saint-Emilion), and Château Hauchat (Fronsac). Saby wines receive regular buzz for good reason – These are rich, balanced examples of high level Bordeaux.
