Les Racines 2014 - Château du Vieux Puit, Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux

Number of wine boxes of 3 bottles to add to basket:

The opinion of the sommelier

What a straight and gourmet wine ! If the wines from Blayais are well known for their abundant yet softened tannins, this Vieux Puit seduced us also by the complexity of its aromas. Fruity flavours of blackberry, spicy pepper and liquorice, and even chocolate, worn by fine and melted tannins. A great success. 

 

Terroir

The appellations such as Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux (formerly called Premières-Côtes-de-Blaye) or Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux (formerly called Côtes de Castillon) reveal a Bordeaux vineyard in perpetual evolution. Although these two appellations are not the flagship appellations of Bordeaux, they are very trendy and often reveal the best value for the money spent !

lecepage Grape variety

4 grape varieties in this cuvée ‘’Les Racines’’, which is rather rare in Bordeaux! Moreover, the cuvée gives an important place to two "small" grape varieties, since petit verdot and malbec together account for 8% of the blend. A superb Blaye that offers both the enchanting aroma of Merlot and the beautiful structure of the more spicy and tannic varieties.

lemillesime Vintage

2014 in Bordeaux goes back on average after the previous years, but it was a challenge : the wet summer forced the vine growers to engage in an intense fight against the mildew (fungus that dries the plant). Fortunately, the vintage was saved by a breath-taking September that pushed the winemakers to delay the harvest to intensify the maturity of the grapes. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

The Château du Vieux Puit has belonged to the Bouillac family for about fifty years. In addition to being among the best winemakers in their area, the family also grows vine stocks. This craft, which requires a great deal of know-how, consists in cultivating different varieties of vine plants so as to sell those other wine estates.Real expertise, from root to grape.
