For N°1 Bordeaux Red, the remarkable task of seeking out the finest terroirs is also undertaken in the extensive Bordeaux vineyard to pinpoint exactly those areas where Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon have the best chance of reaching full maturity. Forging strong partnerships with growers guarantees optimal and consistent fruit quality. From tending the vine all the way through to the harvest, the growers work in close collaboration with the Dourthe winemakers. The finest batches of N°1 Bordeaux Red mature 12 months in new French oak barriques where the tannins from oak integrate harmoniously with those present in the wine, adding roundness, and balance. The complex aromas are enhanced by several batches being aged to perfection in small 80 hl wooden tanks.
 
N°1 Red 2019 is deep, dark, ruby-red. Complex aromatics allying notes of ripe fruits such as morello cherries and figs with hints of toast. Initially rounded, the wine reveals remarkable elegance on the mid-palate,together with noticeable, yet perfectly measured andintegrated tannins on the finish. This is a classic exemplar from a vintage which while hot, is not lacking in poise.
