"Shutoe luh Shut-tay-Lay Reserve dew Shutoe Sain-Tay-Mill-yon Gron Crew"
Owned by a young, ambitious couple who are deeply committed to take this overlooked estate to new heights, this vintage demonstrates its potential greatness hidden thus far. Although the “Petit Chateaux” category rarely garners top accolades from wine professionals, this gem constitutes a true exception. Generous aromas of dark fruit and hints of dried lavender and rose petals commences the charms and the palate caressing flavors offer a pleasing rush of harmonious succulence just begging for a mild steak, roast, or Mediterranean table spread. A stellar performance for the price! Serve at cool room temperature after 1 hour of decanting. Best 2016 – 2020.
