Château Laulerie Bergerac Merlot 2019

15.00

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.

Producer: Vignobles Dubard

Vignobles Dubard is the second generation family operation of Gregory 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.
Gregory 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. He arrived back at Château Laulerie in 2009 determined to tell a story about the Bergerac terroir through fabulous wines with contemporary branding.
