CHÂTEAU FLEUR DE LISSE
SAINT- EMILION GRAND CRU
The fleur-de-lys is the emblem of our vineyard. The choice is inspired by a 17th century medical book, where lily flowers are shown intertwined with vines. This union of lily and vine represents the authenticity and elegance of this grand cru estate that we purchased in 2016. The plots circle the wonderful village of Saint-Etienne de Lisse. They are located at the bottom of silt-clay slopes that we continuously tend. Plot diversity is a major asset here. It allows us blend prime merlots with superb cabernet francs that have access to excellent drainage and exposure. Cabernet franc is one of the oldest red grape varieties in Bordeaux. It’s the focus of our research efforts into massal selection techniques. In 2021, as part of a long-term pursuit of excellence at Château Fleur de Lisse, we are replanting several plots.
COMPLEX, DAZZLING, ELEGANT
The wine is already known for its complexity. On the nose, it reveals primary aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry or raspberry with subtle notes of hazelnut and chocolate. In the mouth, the velvet tannins leave an elegant creamy impression. The finish is fruity, long lasting and delicious. A dazzling wine!
