Description

This lively Merlot from up and coming Bergerac winemaking family, the Dubards, is a supple and velvety, medium bodied wine from young vines grown on south and south west facing hillside sites in under-rated region Bergerac, east of Bordeaux.

With red berry aromas on the nose and cherry, cassis and subtle spice on the palate, the wine shows well integrated tannins and a refreshing acidity and is a perfect accompaniment to classic French fare such as Poulet Rôti et Pommes Frites.

  • Young, fruity, juicy

Producer: Vignobles Dubard

Vignobles Dubard is the second generation family operation of Gregory and Marine Dubard, located in Bergerac, just east of Bordeaux and the Durdogne river. The homestead, Château Laulerie, is a 19th century stone farm surrounded by the original livestock buildings. The estate comprises 85 hectares of vines with Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Malbec dominating plantings. Soil-type here is almost identical to that of neighbouring Saint-Émilion but land, and subsequently wine here, is much more favourably priced.
Both graduated winemakers, Gregory and Marine first gained experience in St Chinian and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, traveling further afield to gain experience in Italy and New Zealand, and finally closer to home in Pomerol. They arrived back at Château Laulerie in 2009 determined to tell a story about their Bergerac terroir through fabulous wines with contemporary branding. We think they've done a rather splendid job so far.
