Wine of the month – September 2018 – Château La Picherie, AOC Montagne Saint-Emilion

Rodolphe Guimberteau,

winemaker

I am a nurseryman, meaning I create vine stocks and sell them to other winegrowers so that they can use them in their vineyard, that’s the very first step. It’s also the story of an union between Merlot, the grape variety, and the terroir, the clay-limestone soil of the Saint-Émilion region, which gives us a very intense,deeply coloured wine with a silky, elegant, almost creamy taste.
