    We’ve had a look at a good number of St Estephe, and finally we’ve found a wine that excites us. It is made by Maxime St Martin who in his late twenties is the youngest vigneron in the appellation (Dad is a cru artisan Haut-Médoc producer in Lamarque). It is a three hectare estate where the 45yo vines are planted in gravelly soils overlying limestone clay. Aged in 25% new to 3yo barrels, this wine has a bright ruby colour, an aromatic richness characterised by red fruit and spices, good intensity of fruit on the palate, a suppleness of texture and fine well integrated tannins. For drinking now to 2025.
