Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Malbec.

Elegant and stylish with pure, rich, vibrant focused sweet cherry and blackberry fruit that is supple and polished. The aromas capture the ripe berry fruit with just a touch of toasty oak, finishing with fine grain tannins that linger.

"A Bordeaux blend, St Supéry's Élu is a polished wine with great length. The engaging tobacco aromas suggest complexity, which is exactly what follows. Layers of earthy smoky flavors complement the ripe black-fruit character. Supple, silky tannins make it easy to pop the cork now." Michael Apstein
