The opinion of the sommelierI have the pleasure to share with you a Côtes de Bourg wine as I love them ! On the right bank of Bordeaux, this appellation gives birth to beautiful structured red wines. The nose is deliciously influenced by Merlot : red and black fruits, enhanced by subtle flavours of pepper and even cocoa ! In the mouth, the richness of its structure matches perfectly with the delicacy of its freshness.
TerroirThe clay-limestone soil of the appellation is rich in minerals and allows a good development of the vine thanks to the deep roots which bring freshness in summer. The terroir is composed of gravel and sand, light coloured materials that reflect the light on the grapes and favours photosynthesis and thus gives the wines of a very nice finesse.
Grape varietyMerlot is the most widespread grape variety in Bordeaux and is also the favourite grapes of blackbirds named “merle”. This bird, as dark as the bay, has even given its name to the grape because merlot means 'merle’ in the local dialect. Merlot produces round, smooth wines with delicious aromas of red and black fruits.
VintageThe year 2016 is one of the great vintages of the Bordeaux region. The rainy spring has followed a hot and dry summer and allowed a harvest with good ripeness. The grapes are concentrated and display a bright fruit. The vintage gives colourful red wines with a very pleasant freshness.
