Introduction

Originally started as a cattle farm to breed a herd of blonde cows called "Blondes d'Aquitaine'', Adrien and Fabienne Uijttewaal left their Dutch homeland to pursue their agricultural dream in France. After seeing the beauty of the Bordeaux region and developing a passion for wine, they decided to start planting and farming grapes. After learning to produce wine under a cooperage for nearly a decade, Adrien and Fabienne decided to build their own wine cellar along with restoring the family’s historic 18th-century home on the property. They bottled their own first estate vintage in 1995, giving birth to Chateau Saint Hilaire. The couple is now committed to teaching their daughter Elise. She graduated with a degree in agricultural engineering in 2017, so that she can carry on the family's sustainable winemaking practices well into the future. Drink now or in ten years from now at a temperature of 18 C.


How it looks

How it smells

Refreshing eucalyptus aromas are peppered by red fruit and bright florals on the nose. A distinguished sandalwood character is inviting, like lighting incense to set the tone for a perfect evening with friends and family.

How it tastes

Ripe with flavours of red plum, raspberry and pomegranate, promptly followed by black cherry, blackberry and blueberry notes. The elongated finish is characterized by earthy charcoal and truffle notes, well-integrated with flavours of caramel, dark chocolate and espresso and just a kiss of vanilla from the fine French oak.

Recommended food pairing

Pair with braised lamb shoulder with fennel and orange, candied bacon maple cheddar burger, filet mignon braised in whiskey bbq sauce or potato leek squares.
