2015 Chateau Haut Segottes "La Dame" Saint-Emilion Grand CruRosenthal
A new, special cuvée from Haut-Segottes, (first produced in 2015), “La Dame” is made from a selection of their very best grapes from the excellently situated “lieu-dits” of Fortin (across from La Dominique and 300 meters from Cheval Blanc). Composed of their typical, roughly 50/50 blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the wine is fermented and aged in barrel (100 % new) for 18 months before being bottled. This cuvée has an extra degree of concentration and richness compared to the more delicate style of their classic Saint-Émilion. This wine is formidable and structured, ideally built for some cellaring, and will reward those who have the patience to set some aside. It is very limited; less than 3000 bottles were produced from this vaunted vintage.
