Cuvée des Séniors 2014

Product: Château du Garde
AOP  Côtes de Bordeaux – Made and Aged in French oak casks
Surface: 0.5 ha
Soil: clay limestone
Varietal: 100% Merlot
Vinification: From our best plots of Merlot on the property, the harvest is manual to keep the grapes at their best. The fermentation is monitored and traditional. We punch down the cap several times a day for the duration of the fermentation then the Cuvee des Séniors is aged in French oak casks from 12 to 18 months.
Tasting :
View: Ruby color, shiny with purple highlights
Nose: Not fully expressive at first, this wine needs to be in a decanter to appreciate its complexity, fresh with balanced taste of red fruits (raspberries and red currents), vanilla and slightly caramelized.
Palate: Fruity, aerial, full-bodied but not too much , this wine remains fresh with fine elegant tannins. Very nice complexity for this product that the casks’work underlines without dominating.
Overall: This wine can go with gravy meat, spicy dishes or strong cheeses.
Serve at 16-18°c
