Château Jos - Grande Cuvée

AOC Bordeaux Red

Situated at the heart of the Bordeaux winegrowing area, the estate owned by the Burliga family lies in Beychac-et-Caillau a few dozen kilometres from Saint-Emilion. Here, it all began in 1984, with six hectares, when Jacques Burliga bought Château La Lande de Taleyran. He wanted to make wine with the sole objective of producing quality. The business expanded with the takeover of three further estates, including Château Jos. Arnaud Burliga, the family’s sole heir, also fell in love with the nectar known as wine. His passion prompted him to study œnology, agronomy and trade. He worked in a number of prestigious châteaux, such as Château Lamothe and Château La Cardonne (an estate formerly owned by the famous Lafitte-Rothschild family) to perfect his winemaking skills, and for two years held down the post of winery manager in Oregon in the United States. Enriched by all these experiences, he joined his father on the family estate in 2005. In 2008, the family invested in a modern winery facility of 1,200m². Keen to protect the environment and biodiversity, the family deploys the whole spectrum of integrated farming and organic farming techniques to ensure long life to consumers, its employees and the soil.

Fruity notes go hand-in-hand with plump tannins wrapped in creamy, lingering, superbly balanced extract. Serve at 17°-19°C, a delicious accompaniment to a fine cut of grilled meat or a generous cheese board over a festive meal.

    TASTING NOTES

    Clad in an elegant, deep red, this wine displays intense, fresh red and black fruit aromas. The ample, powerful palate underpinned by perfectly extracted tannins offers outstanding fruitiness and a subtle oakiness that persists right to the end of the lingering finish.
