Saga R Pauillac

Saga R
Generations of local knowledge have taught our grape growers the secrets of each appellation. They know where to source the best grapes to create the most outstanding wines.

The vintage
2018 was an exceptional vintage in Pauillac, despite particularly capricious weather, with a rainy winter and spring that resulted in one of the worst threats of mildew in living memory. Fortunately, the situation improved dramatically over the summer, which was the hottest since 2003. Conditions then became ideal for ripening the grapes. The contrast between warm, sunny days and cool nights resulted in good aromatic concentration and an excellent balance of sugar and acidity.
Varietals
Cabernet sauvignon : 50%

Elegant nose, combining leather, wax polish and tobacco aromas On the palate, the wine is supple and full-bodied with velvety tannins. It is elegant and refined wine with a fresh, aromatic finish. A fine example of the 2018 vintage.
