Region

Combined with the Cotes de Bourg, these two regions form the eastern bank of the Gironde as it flows north of Libourne. The red wines here are gutsy, with ample fruit and a distinct earthy terroir

Producer

This is 148 acre property is Bordeaux`s most extensive organic vineyard, situated on the right bank of the Gironde on the best limestone and clay soils of Cars, a small commune near Blaye. The 19th century Chateaux is dominated by a magnificent crenellated tower, offering magnificent views over this ancient estate.
Tasting Notes
Situated on the right bank of the Gironde on the best limestone and clay soils of Blaye, this is Bordeaux`s most extensive organic vineyard. The wine is a supple blend of 75% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. Smooth on the palate with lush flavours of redcurrants, plums, cherries and slight earthy notes, the wine is well structured with supple tannins and a core of minerality.
Food
An ideal accompaniment with beef wellington or try with stilton souffle.
