Chateau Cassevert 1985 - Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
The Saint-Emilion grand cru is a protected designation of origin red wine produced on one of the nine municipalities of the Saint-Emilion appellation. The name is part of the vineyard Libournais, one of the subdivisions of the Bordeaux vineyards. There are actually two AOC in the region of Saint-Emilion: one AOC Saint-Emilion, and also the AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. The difference between the two is not geographical, they cover the same appellation. The difference is related to stricter conditions: to benefit from the Saint-Emilion grand cru appellation requires a limited yield to 40 hl / ha and aged for 12 months minimum. With this Chateau Cassevert, we offer a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. This is a nice merlot-based wine that built, despite the years, always gives pleasure. A nice wine in a great vintage. A share with friends.

An exceptional vintage. Particularly elegant in their youth, these wines are now velvety, sweet and of great finesse. The wines of the Medoc, with soft tannins well, impress with their tenderness and their fruity. The Pomerol and Saint-Emilion combine wonderfully concentration and finesse. The dry whites are rich and complex. Sweet wines are ample, fruity and honeyed
