"The flagship, super-concentrated, garagiste-like effort from the huge Dourthe firm, this 2009 is made from their best generic fruit and given a lot of flashy oak and extract. The result is a wine that transcends its humble appellation. This big, deep, chewy wine will benefit from several more years of cellaring and keep for at least a decade. " - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Feb 2012)
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 six 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.
