Description

This beautiful wine gift box has 3 x 100ml of superb wines. They all come from the great estates of the Saint Emilion region of France which is renowned for its outstanding wine quality. The Château Coutet is from a very old, established vineyard of Saint Emilion, while the Château Chatelet is from a small, but successful vineyard. The third wine, the Château Bellerose Figeac, is the product of some of the best soils of the Saint Emilion region, the mixture of sand, clay, gravel and limestone which lend themselves so well to viticulture.
