Château de Benauge

AOC Bordeaux Supérieur Rouge

Standing at the highest point of the Entre-Deux-Mers region, the 16th-century castle has towered over the vineyards of Bordeaux for more than a thousand years. It has a rich and exciting history; for example, it was a stronghold of resistance during the Gascony revolt in the autumn of 1253. In 1426, a royal decision by Henry VI, the king of France and England, officially made the viscounty an earldom or county, the Comté de Benauge. Château de Benauge has been a listed historical monument since 1995. Passionately dedicated winegrowers, the Ackers pour all their know-how in to coaxing out the full expression of this outstanding terroir. Their love of the vineyard and work well done has made Château de Benauge one of the flagship estates of the appellation.

This 2017 has the richness and charm typical of a Merlot harvested at full maturity in a terroir where it thrives. A fine, aromatic wine, ready to be shared over a convivial meal now or in the next two years.
