The opinion of the sommelier
«This wine was produced with the three main grape varieties of the Bordeaux region: merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Enjoy the soft tannins of this cuvee coming from the cabernet franc; discover its woody aromas and its garnet robe with purple reflections. I advice you to pair this wine with a nice rare or medium rare rib steak. Enjoy!»
The blend of these three grape varieties is common in the Bordeaux region. Merlot brings fruit hints and velvet feelings to the wine, while the cabernet sauvignon brings power and robustness. The cabernet franc, with fewer tannins, permits a faster aging and can be surprising with its vegetal aromas.

Château Bastian is a property of 7 hectares on the left bank of the Garonne. Brigitte and Stéphane Savigneux take care of this domain since 1988 and are often rewarded for their hard work. Indeed, they received an award from the Hachette Vin guide in 2014.
The soil of this terroir is composed of sand and clay, with pebbles, stones and gravels. As the soil is poor, the vineyards need to go deep in the soils to find nutriments. Thanks to the pebbles, stones and gravels, the sun is reflected on the wine grapes that enables a better maturation of the grapes.
