90 points Vinous
"The 2016 La Vaisinerie has a subtle, complex bouquet of red berry fruit, sage, rose petals and a touch of tobacco. It just needs some coaxing from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and unashamedly classic in style. The classy, tobacco-tinged finish feels long and satisfying. Excellent."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: Château La Vaisinerie is located on the hills of Puisseguin, at 6 miles from Saint-Emilion produces Puisseguin Saint-Emilion red wines, with 91% of Merlot and 9% of Cabernet Franc. The average age of the vineyard is 35 years old. The appellation « Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion » is said “satellite” of Saint-Emilion. This appellation covers 730 ha. The clay and limestone soil, similar to Saint-Emilion, enables a good water supply for the vine, perfect in case of drought. The property goes on a verdant space of 25 hectares, on which the vines meet several trees, hedges and a pond. The responsible farming practices on our vineyard of 13 ha favour the blossoming of local biodiversity, real preoccupation on the property.
