The opinion of the sommelier

You might have noticed that Château Ramage la Batisse is a “Cru Bourgeois”. What does it mean? Maybe you know that the wines made in Medoc (the prestigious part of Bordeaux’s left bank)were ranked in 1855. But since then, the ranking hasn’t changed even though a lot of new great wines emerged in Médoc. The “Cru Bourgois” ranking was created in 1932 to award these new talents from Médoc. 

 

Terroir

Located in the heart of Médoc, the vines are planted on a chalky underground whereas the ground itself is made of graves. So it is a poor soil that naturally limits the vines’ yield. Moreover, it challenges the vines which have to grow long roots in order to find their nutrients deep hence giving very high quality wines.

lecepageGrape variety

If merlot is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, it is pretty uncommon to find so much merlot in a wine from Médoc ! Indeed, in this part of Bordeaux, cabernet-sauvignon is the king as it gives its best on soils made of graves. However, this choice of adding a lot of merlot was good as it is what gives this wine its silky texture that swathes cabernet-sauvignon strong tannins.

lemillesimeVintage

2013 was a complicated vintage for Bordeaux’s winemakers. Indeed, March was cold which cut by half the yields as winemakers had to take away a lot of grapes that could not ripen enough. However, most experts say that 2013 won’t be worse than 2011 or 2012, only rarer. Indeed, serious Bordeaux winemakers do not want to put their reputation at stake and do not hesitate to keep only the best grapes to elaborate their wines, as it was the case for this very nice “Cru Bourgeois”! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a familyt

Since 1961, Château Ramage la Batisse has slowly but surely become a star of the Haut-Médoc. The 95 hectares of the estate were entrusted in 1990 to renowned winemaker Georges Pauli. Thanks to its hard work and the modernization of the winery, Château Ramage la Batisse eventually became a Cru Bourgeois in 2003. Well done Georges !
