In the North of Saint-Émilion, Yannick Menguy produces AOC Saint-Georges Saint-Émilion and Montagne Saint-Émilion wines. With his wife Nelly, they perpetuate the family’s tradition of welcoming people on the property directly. They mainly market Vieux Guillou wines in direct sales. It is recognized as one of the best wines of this appellation.
It is a wine of great aging (over 15 years) offered for consumption 5 to 7 years after harvest and can be tasted immediately. Its character is usually fruity, complex with aromas of candied red fruits and violet. It is round, fleshy, endowed with ripe and silky tannins, fine and elegant.
Aeration is highly recommended with an opening 1 hour before the meal and / or a decanting in a carafe.
