Château Bournac, a Cru Bourgeois du Médoc, was bought in 1975 by Pierre Secret, a cereal farmer before he turned to wine. In 1982, his two elder sons set up their own vineyard, prompted by the same desire to make a Médoc wine, Château la Chandelliére. Bruno, the younger son, took over Bournac in 1990. He worked to enhance the reputation of the cru until 2007. He then sold his business to his brothers and nephews who, as a GAEC joint farming venture, share the different tasks to produce quality wines year after year.
Deep crimson hue with deep purple tints, nose of ripe blackberry and blackcurrant, ripe, well-integrated tannins. On the palate, good balance between acidity and tannins, and between fruit and spice. Fine length. A wine that will add sparkle to meat or fish dishes.
A wine for laying down, 10-15 years
