Alcohol: 13%

Grape(s): 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet sauvignon

Localization: Bordeaux, France

Tasting Notes: Intense, dark red color. Ripe, fresh fruit on the nose, expressive oak with vanilla and toasty notes. Full, round, powerful, and aromatic on the palate. An authentic Bordeaux.

Notes: Destemming and crushing of the grapes. Thermovinification of part of the harvest to obtain a must rich in color and fruity aromas. Alcoholic fermentation (controlled temperature, selected yeasts) and maceration of the skins for around 3 weeks to obtain a rounded wine with good structure. Part of the blend is aged in oak to add complexity to the wine's aromas.

The Domain: Château Tour Caillet, the former hunting lodge of the Marquis de Guinot, faces Saint-Emilion on the left bank of the Dordogne. The vineyard, on a plateau overlooking the Dordogne, has been in the family since 1962.
