Description

From generously warmed light hillside clay soils, with underlying ancient flint, the aim of the winemakers of the 100% Cabernet Franc ‘Just Terre’ is to impart fully the flavours and mysteries of Bergerac’s unique terroir.

After fermentation the wine was transferred to 500 litre terracotta amphorae where the wine is then aged for 8 months resulting in a dense and silky wine, with tannins that are much softer, velvety and better integrated as a result of the micro-oxygenation through the porous terracotta.

With smooth integrated flavours of red raspberry, strawberry and some black plum the wine perfectly expresses its chalky minerality and fruit centre seamlessly.

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.
