Discreet nose. Smooth mouthfeel with notes of ripe and dried fruits, cocoa and oaky elegance. Supple tannins with a lingering finish.
Tasting notes from Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
"Mid-garnet. Sweet and deliciously mature 'decay' of the fruit on the nose, giving a complex aroma but still some red fruit. A little chalky/dusty on the palate, with lovely freshness and a gentle herbaceousness."16/20 Points
Producer Profile Château Edmus
The vineyard that today forms Château Edmus was acquired by Philip Edmundson and Eric Remus in 2007, from Château de Lescours. The history of the estate dates back to the Middle Ages when King Edward I of England issued a land grant to the Squire of Lescours in 1341. The vineyard later became an important supplier of claret to the court of England. Since their acquisition, Phil Edmundson and Eric Remus have taken every step to restore this exceptional 5.8-hectare terroir to its historical heights. Renown wine consultant, Stephane Derenoncourt is involved in every aspect of the transformation of the fruit from the 35-year-old vines to wine. Château Edmus was sold to Laurent David from the Wine Angel in October 2019, who’s intention is to carry out within the same respect and tradition.
