Tasting Note:

Jacques and Sylvie's home estate is situated in the commune of Mouillac in the canton of Fronsac. Over a third of Grand Village is planted with vines in the best and most suitable plots for viticulture. The rest of the estate is woodland or is used to rear cattle or produce cereal crops. It is an enchanting estate and one that despite its lowly appellation is capable of producing excellent wines. It is also used as something of a guinea pig to test new ideas and practices before adopting them at Chateau Lafleur. The 2015 Grand Village is a very floral, sensual wine displaying wonderful, bright crimson fruit, blood orange and wild strawberries. It is vibrant, pure and very engaging with its bittersweet plum and cherry stone flavours, sense of energy and impressive tannic structure. As we know only too well, these wines are a joy to drink when young, but always reward cellaring; 2015 will be no exception. 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc.
