A fantastic blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec from our premium Bordeaux producer Chateau Puybarbe. The vineyards are all owned and managed by Anna and Riku, who farm sustainably without the use of harmful herbicides or pesticides, with an average age of around 30 years. They've produced a rose that is beautifully elegant, full of raspberries, red cherries and strawberries. Provence in style, pale, dry, crisp and refreshing.
The perfect accompaniment to a summers day in the garden, and goes perfectly with grilled seafood off the BBQ.
"Chateau Puybarbe were introduced to our me back in the summer of 2020. It’s fair to say we were all astounded by the quality of the wines and the presentation. The labels walk the tightrope between classic and modern Bordeaux like a pro, with the wines proving to be equally as elegant."
Château Puybarbe is situated at the highest elevation of the Côtes de Bourg appellation, looking over the Gironde estuary on the right bank of Bordeaux. The 41 hectare vineyard comprises mainly Merlot and cabernet sauvignon and is cultivated according to sustainable philosophies. A brand new winery was inaugurated in 2001 and the winemaking is a mix of traditional and modern showing ultimate respect for the grapes and the terroir. This winery offers seriously good value to Claret fans, all the character of great Bordeaux with the price tag of a Côtes de Bourg!
