This cuvée, composed equally between Merlot and Cabernet Franc, comes from the young vines of Château la Brande. The plots planted on a clay-limestone soil, facing south, give small yields.
This 2019 “marmot” cuvée is vinified as naturally as possible and above all without added sulfur.
Eye: Deep ruby color with a beautiful intensity
Nose: Red and black fruits, cherry, blackcurrant, sweet spices and a very subtle hint of violet.
Palate: Frank and fruity attack, round, silky tannins and a soft, fruity, long and very lacy finish.
Look at the wine:
The color, the shine, the nuances, the dress.
Smell the wine:
First glass nose immobile, the second nose after agitation and aeration.
Taste the wine:
The attack, the development in the mouth and finally the final note.
