L’Eclat de Valentin St. Émilion Grand Cru 2016 Red Wine – Bordeaux France
Frédéric Leydet runs the Château Leydet-Valentin and Château de Valois, both his family’s estates. Château LEYDET-VALENTIN is located on 8.87 hectares (21.91 acres) in Saint-Emilion, at the border with Pomerol. This farm was bought by one of Frederic’s ancestors.
As for his subtle Château de VALOIS Pomerol, Frederic LEYDET only has in mind to reach a total expression of his exceptional LEYDET-VALENTIN terroir, neighbouring famous classified growths (including Château CHEVAL BLANC 1st Classified Growth Cat. A). Unmatchable bouquets, savors and opulence can be found in Château LEYDET-VALENTIN.
The wineries are less than 3 miles from each other and they are in a top growing area of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. They are very near to Cheval Blanc, Figeac, and Angelus. The soil is composed of sand, fine gravel, and iron. Like Cheval Blanc, Valois and Leydet-Valentin also have a high percentage of Cabernet Franc planted to best express the terroir of this area.
About L'Eclat Valentin
Extremely limited production from 60 years old vines. Handpicked Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Certified Organic.
Beautiful aromas of licorice and blue plums here with a succulent array of fresh, rich and ripe tannins, as well as a deep, supple and succulent push of fine, vibrant tannins. This has a great richness and verve all at once.”
