James Suckling 91
A chewy and juicy red with intense yet polished tannins and a savory, ripe-fruit character with hints of dried citrus. This is energetic with tension.

Tasting notes
CHATEAU BOURDIEU N 1 offers a beautiful deep garnet color to the eye with intense reflections. Its expressive and complex nose, made up of very ripe black fruits: blackcurrant, blueberry, blackberry and fresh red fruits: strawberry, redcurrant, is enhanced with wonderful toasted and vanilla notes. Its mouth is rich, structured, fleshy and ample thanks to its round and silky tannins. The finish brings this rich side which will make it appreciated on all occasions.

Estate
Since 1464, the Chteau Bourdieu vineyard has flourished on the terroirs of the right bank of the Gironde. Now owned by the Schweitzer family, it covers 75 hectares of AOC Blaye Ctes de Bordeaux. Luc and his two sons Ludovic and Richard have the culture of Lavigne deeply rooted in their genes and the taste for meticulous work. This is why each cuve is made with the same attention and the same passion. We thus find in each wine of Chteau Bourdieu the richness of the terroirs and the quality of the great wines of Bordeaux. The estates vineyards are an average of 35yrs old and grow on a mixture of clay, limestone and gravel soils.

Vinification
Prestine grapes are harvested at high phenolic maturity to obtain the silkiest possible tannin. Once at the winery the grapes are sorted to ensure only the top quality grapes are processed. After a long maceration, around 4 weeks, in temperature-controlled vats color extraction is encouraged by regular punch downs. This adds to the enhancement of the phenolic richness and complexity of the terroirs. The final wine is then aged in French oak to add an additional layer of elegance and complexity to this pretty wine.
