The Sommelier’s Advice:
The Grands Chais Saint-Jacques is signed by the well-known wine-maker Nicolas Billot-Grima, who’s family settled in the Bordeaux area since 6 generations. Full bodied, with long length, its fruitiness is due to severe selection at the harvest and while blending. A classical still at the date !
