Intense garnet red in appearance. Wonderfully seductive on the nose, it unleashes red and black berry fruit aromas, enhanced with a hint of delicately spicy oak. Initially supple on the attack, the wine is rounded on the palate, and the aromas evolve harmoniously against the beautifully balanced tannic structure. The wine finishes long on a long, flavoursome and slightly smoky note.
Since its inception in Bordeaux in 1840, Dourthe has remained true to the values underpinning its rich and unique history: its connection to the terroir, extremely high quality standards and an innovative approach.
Grape growers at heart, Dourthe owns nine chateaux within the Bordeaux region. Each estate is run by a young, dynamic team working under the overall control of Frédéric Bonnaffous, Director of Vignobles Dourthe. Their objective is to enhance the terroir and produce unique wines, the standard bearers of the appellation. The same quality standards apply to selecting the wines that make up our final blends. Thomas Drouineau, the Dourthe winemaker, works hand in hand with the growers to guarantee supplies of the finest wines, that through their care and attention, will mature gracefully in our cellars at Parempuyre.
