Egregore 2010 - Côtes de Bourg

Out of stock

The opinion of the wine taster

The Egregore is one of the exceptional wines of the Bernard Magrez, the French wine magnate. I suggest you the vintage 2010 for his generous matter and his very long keeping potential. This cuvée Egregore is considered as a step to perfection…  
 

The terroir

The vineyard grows in the lieu-dit of Guerit, close to the village of Tauriac. The grape of the Egregore comes from the slopes exposed to the south of the Chateau Guerry. The soil is composed of clay and sand. The Château Guerry is the oldest wine of Bordeaux and it exists since three century.

lecepage The grape variety

58% of the surface of this vineyard is covered by merlot. In contrast to the Bordeaux tradition of blended wines, this wine is vinified with only one variety, fact very rare for this region. Merlot gives a nice suppleness and a tannic structure to wine, along with a superb aromatic set.

lemillesime The vintage

2010 was an excellent and sophisticated year for the Bordeaux region. The good structure keeps the freshness of the wine. Average temperatures for all the summer until the harvest, together with fresh nights have always ended in great vintage in the Bordeaux region. Egregore 2010 obtained a mark of 89-91/100 by Robert Parker.

lerecoltant The winemaker

Known for his exceptional wine, Bernard Magrez is a self-made winemaker. He became the first owner of the grand wines classified at Bordeaux. We call him “ the men of 40 wineries”!

Appearance - A lovely colour with garnet reflections.

Nose - The merlot provides a nice complexity of aromas. With ageing, aromas turn to touches of prune, understory and spices. These flavours are due to the maturation in French oak barrels.
