CHÂTEAU BARREYRES HAUT-MÉDOC CRU BOURGEOIS

This year, tasting was the key to success for Château Barreyres, even more so than in other years. Each vat was tasted several times a week to check for body and texture, and enhanced by the regular stirring in of lees (batonnage), performed every two days. The decision to draw off the wine is an important one – second only to deciding on the right harvest date – and is made when the wine has reached the right degree of roundness on the palate. Our vineyard management methods, together with the role played by regular, frequent tastings, have produced a delightful, fruit-filled wine

Taste & Aroma

A very pleasing deep crimson colour. Full of deliciously fruity aromas including blackcurrants and forest fruits. This Cru Bourgeois is known for its charming, elegant character. The palate is pleasingly well-structured, and flavours include cooked fruit and strawberry compote. Very well balanced: powerful yet highly elegant. One of 2013’s success stories.
