Nose of jammy red fruit with a good freshness. The palate is silky and well balanced with delicate tannins. Blackcurrant-fruit driven with cedar, tobacco, and a touch of liquorice on the finish.
Manual harvest. Classical vinification with long final maceration. Fermentation on the skins for 4 to 6 weeks. Ageing for 18 months in vats and barrels of which 30% are new.
The Martin family has been based in Saint-Julien for more than three centuries and has engaged in various different professions all with links to viticulture (farmers, cellar masters, managers, coopers), whilst at the same time owning a little vineyard known by the name of Château Haut-Beychevelle Gloria. This cru, which is considered to be the family's historic property and crown jewel, was the original source of Henri Martin's passion for wine.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Grilled beef fillet, rack of lamb, terrine or cheese
