This claret is made from almost equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, grown on gravel and clay soils, and aged for one year in one-third new French oak

The still youthful 2015 is crimson-hued with purple tints, the powerful, refined nose a marriage of red-berried fruit with elegant oak and strong hints of spice. The front-of-palate displays plump, creamy extract, the mid-palate revealing a balanced structure that gives this wine fine length. An excellent wine from an exceptional year. A few years’ patience will be required to taste it at its peak.

Final blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Ready for drinking from 2017, but can be cellared for 8-10 years.
 
Auspicious beginnings as Château Saint-Hilaire was established in 1982, a memorable vintage that put Bordeaux on the global map (with the help of US wine critic Robert Parker). Eric Boissenot, consultant oenologist at St-Hilaire, ensures final blending takes place only after painstaking tasting of different barrels (although, how painstaking can it be?). In the 2003 revision, Saint-Hilaire was promoted to Cru Bourgeois level.
