AOC Bordeaux Red

Owned by the Vrignaud family through three generations, the estate makes an excellent job of farming an outstanding terroir in the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux area. With 12 hectares of vines, four of which produce sweet white wines of the highest quality, the vineyard is run with passionate dedication and determination by Joel Vrignaud. The vines are planted on gravely soils and yield wines of great distinction and elegance.

    TASTING NOTES

    Brilliant garnet in hue, the nose expressive of crunchy black fruit underpinned by more spicy notes reminiscent of cloves and pepper. The generously fruit-forward, fresh attack gives way to superb extract over a plump, smooth, ripe and delightfully fresh tannic base.

    AGEING

    4 to 8 years.

    TASTING NOTES

    A beautifully deep, brilliant garnet hue with deep purple tints. Richly expressive nose with black fruit aromas (blackcurrant), as well as more spicy and floral notes. Remarkable balance on the palate, extremely supple and ample. Very elegant tannic structure. The product of a ripe harvest with the elegance typical of Bordeaux wines. Best enjoyed young over an informal meal with friends as an accompaniment to a delicious cut of grilled meat.

    AGEING

    To drink from 2015.
