Colour: A limpid red ruby colour.

Nose: The wine has a deeply intense nose of black and red berries.

Palate: On the palate it is melting and fleshy with rich tannins and aromatic notes of blackberry and raspberry with harmonious woody notes.

Food Pairing: A great accompaniment to Steak frites it is ready to drink now, although will mature gently over the next few years.

Located in the limestone hills close to Blaye, Grand barrail Cuvee Prestige is made from 80% Merlot with 20% Cabernet sauvignon. Both young and older vines are mechanically harvested with an extra long maceration period to extract tannins and promote colour. The wine is aged in 30% new oak barrels for 12 months before fining with egg whites, light filtration and bottling.

80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.
