About This Wine
2016 was an excellent year for Bordeaux and so it was for Le Puy. This 2016 is darker fruited than the 2015 vintage with attractive garnet colour and purplish hues. The nose is complexed with blueberry, cassis and redcurrant with hints at sous-bois and gravel. In 2016 the wine is extra quality, still medium-bodied it is very precise, with fine tannins paving the way for a very long and complex finish. A wine of great finesse, sensual in its youth but also with the potential to age and grow for several decades, revealing the full depth and character of this superb terroir. The epitome of elegance and refinement, this 2014 will cellar to advantage for 30-40 years!

World Wine – This 2016 vintage of Emilien is a real gem and one of the best wines I tasted in 2019. As with all vintages the first thing that strikes you is the glorious jewel-like colour. The nose is attractively fruity, with ripe red fruit aromas dominated by cassis and redcurrant with hints at sous-bois and gravel. The palate is silken, medium-bodied and precise, with velvety tannins paving the way for long and complex finish. A wine of great finesse, sensual in its youth but also with the potential to age and grow for several decades. The epitome of elegance and refinement.
