Description

A former 1750 coaching inn, the estate is now covering 24 hectares. The Drode Family has been farmers for generations and established themselves in the village of Teuillac where Malbec has been grown in the area since the 4th century, thriving on not too fertile clay-limestone soils; and it was often used to add colour and structure to other wines produced in the region.  In 2004, the estate submitted their first 100% Malbec cuvee to the Cotes de Bourg commission who found it delicious and balanced, referencing it as part of their appellation.

Produced from 100% Malbec, harvested mechanically then sorted by hand, cold maceration takes place followed by 21 days fermentation then aged in Concrete Vats for 10 months.   This wine shows off a deep colour with amethyst reflections.  The  aroma is an explosion of black berries and toasted wood,  the palate is rich and intense structured by soft tannins and a delicious lingering finish.

A perfect match for Barbequed Meats, Game, and Mature Cheeses.
