At only 8.5 acres, Hortevie is one of the smallest and best regarded estates of St. Julien. A Cru Bourgeois, Hortevie offers a stylish, elegant, and refined St. Julien that has a subtle cedar-wood and Christmas cake nose and is ripe, harmonious, and balanced on the palate. Aged in 25% new oak for over a year, and with almost ten years of age, this wine is coming into its own and is ready to be opened, savored, and enjoyed! An impressive pairing for classic meats like veal, beef, and lamb; or any holiday occasion.
