En Primeur Request

To check the availability of this En Primeur product please contact us

 

 

This wine from Jean-François Baudet is rich with fine tannins and ripe black fruits. Its structure and concentration are generous, while with 12 months in oak, the smoky black-currant fruit still gives freshness. The wine is now well integrated and will be ready from 2021.

      Tasting Notes
      The château itself wasn't built until around 1500, and it was bought by the Baudet family in 1894. Since then, five generations of the family have put their heart and soul into tending the 18 hectares of vines at this château in the Cotes de Blaye, a region which borders Bourg at the northernmost part of Bordeaux's right bank.

      The Vineyard's are situated on one of the best sites on the limestone escarpment of the Blaye - the hill above the village of Plassac.
      Clay/limestone soils give excellent drainage to vines and allow them to fully develop. The slopes face south-west and this ensures optimal ripening conditions for the grapes.

      First vineyard in Blaye to be independently audited and certified under the TERRA VITIS regime for sustainable viticulture. No chemicals - organic fertilizers only, treatments based on observation, encouragement of biodiversity and inter-row vegetation. Bud pruning, green harvesting and de-leafing for optimal fruit/leaf canopy balance where appropriate. Harvesting at optimal ripeness.

      2015 assemblage; Merlot (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Malbec (10%)

      Expressive nose of ripe fruits complimented by soft woody tones and hints of violet. Medium-bodied on the palate, with a perfect balance of ripe fruit, well-formed tannins and a refreshing finish.

      Beautiful alongside duck breast with fresh seasonal vegetables.
