Chateau Trottevielle 2006, St Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classe

 

A parchment dating from 1453 testifies the use of the name for the estate and the existence of a vineyard. A plot of the vines dates back to the time before phylloxera and is more than 120 years old.

Grape varieties:                55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Area of vineyard:             10 ha

Soil:                                  Red clay over limestone

Age of vines:                    40 years average

Vinification:                      This wine is vinified in the traditional method and then matured for 20 to 24 months in oak, 70% of which is new.

Taste:                               With a majority of Merlot in the blend, this wine consistently has great concentration and length. Deeply coloured with lovely depth of blackberry fruit with hints of coffee and chocolate. A truly elegant Bordeaux wine of great finesse.

Serve:                               This wine drinks well with red and white meats, roasts, lamb, poultry and game.
