Château Rouquette

2014 La Tour aux Palombes

BLEND | 70% Merlot & 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

VINEYARDS | From southeast oriented vineyards - high density plating at 5000 vines/hectare. Calcaire (clay) soils which are farmed organically with some biodynamic practices. Vines are approximately 30 years old.

WINEMAKING | Aged 18 months in stainless steel - a few barrels of Cru Mérigot are blended before bottling (10%).

TASTING NOTES | Smooth, dark aromas of blackberry and bramble with some cedar and wet clay notes. Beautiful fruit notes of plum and black cherry, with a cola-like nuance and a touch of spice grace the luscious, silky palate. This wine possesses well-integrated tannins that are soft, but still noticeably grippy.
