Silky, rustic Bordeaux with creamy melt-in-your-mouth tannins, berry fruit and earthy overtones.
Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Style: Rich, fruity
Drink By: 2014
This classic 2010 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep brilliant red in colour. Its generously expressive nose is one of black berried fruits, such as blackberry and blackcurrant. The smooth, fleshy palate lengthens to reveal creamy tannins which lend it remarkable balance.
Enjoy with barbecued meats or a well-garnished cheese board.
Vines are planted on calcareous clay. After harvest, cold maceration allows for better extraction of fruit, followed by fermentation on skins lasting 15 days. Ageing takes place in stainless steel vats for one year before bottling.
This family-run estate, owners through five generations, situated in the municipality of Aubie and Espessas at the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers wine region east of Bordeaux is run with passionate dedication and determination by Claude and Julien Champeval. The quality of the terroir, the meticulously worked vines and careful vinification make this chateau a reference point within the appellation.
Merlot (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (40%).
