Château Puynard 2011 - Vignobles Grégoire, Blaye, Côtes de Bordeaux

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

I am quite happy I found this delicious Côtes de Blaye. The mouth is smooth and harmonious. It is like having a ballet dancer wearing a silk dress in your mouth. The finish, which is the taste that stays on the palate after the wine has been swallowed, is long and spicy. 

 

Terroir

The vineyard of Château Puynard covers 17 hectares. The vines are planted on hillsides along the Gironde river, in the Côtes de Blaye area. The close underground is a mix of clay and sand. When you go deeper, the underground has several limestone layers. This makes a really good terroir to grow highly concentrated grapes of merlot.

lecepageGrape variety

The blend merlot - cabernet sauvignon is emblematic of Bordeaux. Indeed, most of the wines from Bordeaux are made from these two varieties, sometimes adding a third one in very small quantity. Merlot develops fine red berries aromas and gives softness to the wine. Cabernet sauvignon brings acidity and strong tannins. It is also mostly thanks to cabernet sauvignon that this wonderful wine has some aging potential./div>

lemillesime Vintage

In the Bordeaux area, the 2011 vintage began with a quite warm and dry spring, which helped limiting the spread of diseases. The summer however was pretty cool, which disturbed the maturation of the grapes. Fortunately, the months of September and October were quite warm and sunny and allowed a harvest at full maturity.

lerecoltant The winemaker

The Gregory family is well known around the vineyards of Bordeaux. Their ancestors started making money by selling harvesting machines. But working with so many winemakers made them feel like making their own wine and this is how they bought several estates in Bordeaux, including Chateau Puynard and the famous Château La Rivière.
