Château Breillan

AOC Haut-Médoc Red

Situated to the east of the village, the chateau is surrounded by woodland and vines. Its history dates back to the Middle Ages. Last century, the Breillan estate produced a very correct, carefully crafted, rather robust and deeply coloured wine called "Clos Montaigne", and a white wine called "Clos du Cardinal"; its tiled-floor winery and its vats, all in varnished oak with their black-painted hoops, were the pride of its owners. The vines which surrounded Breillan at that time represented just one tiny part of the huge estate attached to the chateau. From fortified residence to simple dwelling, from wine estate to specialised teaching establishment, Chateau Breillan has never ceased to adapt to the times and has succeeded in surviving down the centuries. Blanquefort viticultural college now farms the vineyard, 42 hectares of which are contiguous to Château de Dillon.

    TASTING NOTES

    A black-tinted, deep ruby red. The attack is a successful marriage of fruit (black berried fruit, jammy notes, prune) and spices, followed by a supple, rounded palate with deliciously mouth-filling tannins. An elegant wine with all the typical characteristics of the Haut-Médoc. Cellar for at least two to three years before drinking to allow all the different aromas to meld.

    TASTING NOTES

    Clad in a beautiful ruby red with deep purple tints, this 2016 offers an intense, fresh bouquet with a hint of spice, red fruits and cherry. Mouthfilling, chewy tannins on the palate, which lingers to a balanced, superbly unctuous finish. Certainly a great success in this great vintage.

    TASTING NOTES

    Beautiful, intense and deep ruby color. The nose presents a beautiful complexity marked by notes of red fruits, vanilla and spices. The front palate is round and powerful accompanied by notes of cherry and blackcurrant. Precise and with a beautiful texture, the wine is punctuated by a nice slightly mineral length. This bottle has all the arguments to please! So many assets that will allow you to appreciate this bottle young or after cellaring for five years or more.
