Bordeaux is probably the most well-know wine region in France. Bordeaux counts for one third of the good quality french wine.
We have added several exclusive Petit Chataux wines to our portfolio this year. Each wine is bottled at the Chateau and was hand selected for quality, typicity, and value.
The 2010 classification of Cru Bourgeois included 260 chateaux and is the newest classification system and is decided each vintage. We have posted this list in a link below.
We are now the exclusive US Importer of this wonderful wine from Listrac-Medoc. This is a special property dates back to 1735 where it was once part of Cru Hosten. It was later separated and sold to a Listrac winemaker, Dupre, in 1868. Classified in 1932 as Cru Bourgeois Superieur in 1932 and again in 2003, the quality, history and attention to detail continues today. the 2010 vintage is made from a blend of 58% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Carmenere.
Clay and Limestone soils, much like those in St.-Emilion, dominate here and Merlot is the preferred variety. The estate also is keen to include Petit Verdot and reduce the harsh influence that Cabernet Sauvignon imparts when planted in this Terroir.
