Clavis Oréa Grand Cru
Clavis Orea Saint-Émilion Grand Cru is a wine that represents the right bank at his best, with great varietal definition Merlot-Cabernet, with good pedigree, well crafted, balanced, spices, fruit driven, with good backbone, fleshy, and very digest, moreover we wanted to make a great Grand Cru wine accessible palate wise and refined, that can be enjoyed once bottled but also can be aged up to 7-10 years before moving into secondary and tertiary stage.

CLAVIS OREA SAINT-ÉMILION GRAND CRU 2018 Jeff Leve - 19.04.19
Very ripe, fleshy, dense and oaky, the wine is plush, polished and packed with layers of dark red fruits, licorice, smoke, espresso and chocolate. Hedonistic in style, give this a few years of age, allowing it to become an even better wine.

The list below highlights some lesser known (as well as a few renowned) producers whose primeur reds deserve quality scores from 92 to 99 points on a scale of 100.' Subterranean layers of flavor here—dark blackberries, charcoal, figs and leather from this Merlot/Cabernet Franc dominant blend. A bramble patch of flavor, waiting for an Argentinian steak.

Winemaker was a chef. 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. 8 ha (20 acres) spread across St-Émilion. Barrel sample. Inky black core. Ripe and a little toasty but there’s also a light floral note. Very chewy and savoury on the palate, the tannins are all tied up round the fruit, so it seems pretty severe at the moment. Extreme grip but there is freshness and dark fruit hiding underneath, I’m just not sure when it will emerge. Don’t go near it for quite a long time. The tannins are so dominant that it is quite bitter on the finish. (JH) Drink 2025-2030
