"Intense aromas of berries, spices and candied hazelnuts. Medium-bodied, integrated and savory. Sweet and ripe fruit. Stylish. Drink or hold."

Product Description:

"The 1.26 hectare vineyard is situated Chateau between Angelus and Chateau Fonrazade. The original plan for this parcel of vines was to include it as part of Chateau Gracia. But after looking over the terroir, it was determined that this was a unique soil and terroir, so a new wine was created...

This is some of the lowest yields in all of Saint Emilion! The vinification takes place in a combination of small, dual walled, insulated, stainless steel vats and cement tanks. The juice receives a 21 to 25-day maceration in temperature controlled, stainless steel vats and Taransaud oak tanks. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 100% new, French oak barrels. The wine of Les Angelots de Gracia is aged in 100% new, French oak barrels. As you can expect, not much wine is made as on average, there is less than 200 cases of wine produced here per vintage." -Wine Cellar Insider
