Situated in the heart of Saint-Emilion's prestigious vineyard slopes and a close neighbour of La Mondotte and Tertre Roteboeuf, Château Godeau was acquired by the Florisoone family at the end of 2012.
Heirs to a long wine-growing tradition and the former co-owners of Château Calon Ségur, Albéric et Agnès Florisoone saw the potential in this lovely 7 hectares wine estate to express all the passion they feel for the land and for wine-growing.
With the help of the team at the estate and with Stéphane Derenoncourt as the consultant winemaker, this young winemaking generation is today breathing new energy into its vineyard through careful precision work, painstaking effort and constant high standards allied to a dash of audacity.
This wine-growing philosophy combined with estate's magnificent terroir makes Château Godeau one of the great heirs to Saint-Emilion's wine heritage
The whole of the Château Godeau wine estate is located on one of the highest slopes of the Saint-Emilion apellation (103m/338ft) in the commune of St Laurent des Combes, where a number of renowed and famous Saint-Emilion grand cru wines are found.
Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2011 (75 cl)
Blend of 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Ageing 12 months in barrels with one third new barrels
Very attractive, deep colour with purple glints. An elegant nose which combines notes of sandalwood, white pepper and the blackest fruits, dark chocolate chips, a touch of liquorice and smoked bacon. Rich and full on the palate, it develops with volume revealing quite creamy fine-grained tannins, without any harshness or austerity.
Note: comes in wooden boxes of 6 or 12 bottles
Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2015 (75 cl)
The wine displays a deep colour, while the hot, sunny conditions of the vintage show through on the nose with notes of yellow and black fruits and touches of roots, irises and sweet spices.
