Vinous Reverie Notes
Great fruit and real pleasure characterise this fine wine of a soft and delicious charisma, reflecting the most beautiful terroirs of Châteaumeillant. Viticulture: Although the Chateaumeillant AOP, (Located south of Bourges in the very center of France) is very young (2010), we can trace back its origin to the 5th century AC when it was an important road junction between Rome and Gaul and a major storing ground for amphorae. The vines, Pinot Noir and Gamay, are planted on siliceous soils, mostly sandy and sandy-clay which allow us to elaborate delicate and structured reds. Tasting notes: This wine with its characteristic connotations of red fruits (cherries, morellos…) is a pleasure to drink. It is full-bodied on the palate with ripe fruits flavors and a light peppery finish. It reveals good roundness and a light, pleasant astringency (tannins from the grapes) assuring good aging for 3 to 5 years.
