Sweet juicy fruit dominates this wine with plum, black cherry and raspberry.  Supple and smooth with juicy tannins and a freshness on the finish.

This will go well with Charcuterie, smoked duck and chicken in red wine sauces.

Fruity aromas of strawberries and raspberries, on the palate a harmonious blend of soft fruit and stone fruit flavours backed up by subtle soft tannins which gives the wine structure.

Chateau Grand Village Rouge, Bordeaux Superieur


The red is usually a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. There is only a very small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon planted here as the soil, as in Pomerol, is rich in clay. The blend is usually 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot and aged in barriques for 12 to 1 months, with only a small proportion of new wood, never more than 20%. The result is a supple and harmonious claret with deceptive levels of concentration and definition and it generally drinks well from three to ten years after harvest. Colour: Red
