The Haut-Medoc, on Bordeaux's Left Bank, is home to four very famous
appellations - Margaux, Pauillac, Saint-Estephe and Saint-Julien. Some of
the most famous châteaus of Bordeaux are located in this region. The
vineyard that produces this wine is nestled in between Margaux and
Saint-Julien, overlooking the Garonne River.
This bold wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grown on gravelly soils from the river. The deep gravel enables an optimum drainage and preserves the vines from the hot summer sun, while the Garonne River creates a micro-climate limiting temperature variations so the berries can grow steadily and achieve maximum ripeness. Nearly a quarter of this wine is aged in new French oak barrels for a year.
Notes of violets and ripe plums on the nose, this wine is robust but fresh on the palate. Lingering notes of cedar and blackcurrants leave you wanting more of this delicious Bordeaux. Pair with steak frites or French Comte.
