This specific type of limestone is incredibly dense. And because of its thick, hard qualities, the stone has often been used as building material for its dense qualities. Les Asteries is owned by Jonathan Maltus. Jonathan Maltus is a very well-known vintner today in St. Emilion who counts among his holdings wineries including Le Dome, Vieux Chateau Mazerat, Chateau Laforge, and Chateau Teyssier. In fact, Les Asteries, which made its official debut in 2005, along with Le Carre. Those 2 wines were the first of the single-vineyard wines that Jonathan Maltus produces today. Starting with the 2013 vintage, Thomas Duclos began acting as their consultant. The 1.2-hectare vineyard for Les Asteries is planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The vines used to produce Les Asteries are located near Chateau Fonroque and not far from Chateau Clos Fourtet, just outside the beautiful village of St. Emilion. The diminutive vineyard of Les Asteries has old vines. In fact, some of the vines are eighty years old! The terroir consists of clay over limestone soils. The fruit is cropped to a low, four bunches per vine here. Because no actual cellars or chateau for Les Asteries exists, the wine of Les Asteries is made at their other, larger, Right Bank estate, Chateau Teyssier. The modern cellars of Chateau Teyssier ensure that all the wine is moved by gravity flow. Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled, wood vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels and the wine is then aged in up to 100% new, French oak barrels.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-13T18:44:58-04:00","created_at":"2023-02-15T15:33:53-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Les Asteries","Region_Bordeaux","RK1402","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Cabernet Franc","Varietal_Merlot"],"price":179899,"price_min":179899,"price_max":179899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42782172610698,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2016 | Les Asteries | Saint-Emilion (Double Magnum)","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":179899,"weight":48988,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/10_0b66b9ce-013f-45af-9ee0-b985fe7dce73.png?v=1676493283"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/10_0b66b9ce-013f-45af-9ee0-b985fe7dce73.png?v=1676493283","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2016 | Les Asteries | Saint-Emilion (Double Magnum) at CaskCartel.com","id":24237863698570,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.386,"height":254,"width":98,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/10_0b66b9ce-013f-45af-9ee0-b985fe7dce73.png?v=1676493283"},"aspect_ratio":0.386,"height":254,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/10_0b66b9ce-013f-45af-9ee0-b985fe7dce73.png?v=1676493283","width":98}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2016 | Les Asteries | Saint-Emilion (Double Magnum)\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis mineral-driven wine is densely fruited while also impressively structured.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Les Asteries\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eWA\u003c\/span\u003e | 92  \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" color=\"#ff2a00\"\u003eJS\u003c\/span\u003e | 95\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e2016\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 3L\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 15%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Cabernet Franc, Merlot\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e France, Bordeaux\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis mineral-driven wine is densely fruited while also impressively structured.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003e\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #222223;\"\u003eReviews:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #9f250d;\"\u003e\u003cstrong data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eWine Advocate\u003c\/strong\u003e:\u003c\/span\u003e The blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc produced a stony, mineral-driven wine with oak, smoky dark fruits, vanilla bean and black raspberry.
