This is a soft, silky style of Saint-Emilion, made by Englishman Jonathan Maltus. It has good plummy fruit, plenty of weight mid-palate, and an easy-going, positive finish.

A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc – shows liquorice and dark berries on a softly textured palate.

Château Teyssier has a long history dating back to the 1700s, but things got really interesting when it changed ownership in the early 90s. Jonathan Maltus sold his engineering company and bought this Saint-Émilion Grand Cru property in 1994. He completely renovated it and grew it from around 5 hectares to over 50. This maverick Brit and lover of Cabernet Franc quickly earned the moniker “garagise” and “cult winemaker”, particularly for the “super-cuvées” he produces on the estate. These include Le Dome, which was awarded 99 points and 100 points by Robert Parker in 2009 and 2010 respectively and hails from plots near Châteaux Canon, Beau-Séjour Bécot and Angèlus, Les Astéries and Le Carré (next to Clos Fourtet), Vieux Château Mazerat (neighbouring to Angèlus) and Clos Nardian (a dry white wine). He also makes wine in Napa under the World’s End label and is the man who selected our very own Harvey Nichols Bordeaux Supérieur. However, his most well-known wine is Château Teyssier – a wonderful Saint-Émilion that has played no small part in earning Jonathan Maltus his OBE.
