About the Wine

Château Du Parc is located in the Saint-Émilion appellation in Bordeaux near the Dordogne River just an hour's drive east of the city of Bordeaux.
   These picturesque hills of the world-renowned Saint-Émilion appellation produce some of the best wines in the region. Château Du Parc has two terroirs on its 5.5 hectares (13.6 acres). To the south, the vineyards are mostly gravel and sand-based while the north consists of clay and limestone soils. The vineyard’s terroir creates a natural drainage system; this coupled with the perfect exposure to the sun produces perfect ripening conditions for our grape varieties. Vine plantings are made up of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, with vines averaging about 27 years in age. This ensures optimal production and grape characteristics.

Tasting Notes:

The wine has a rich red color with sheen and great intensity. Very ripe, red fruit notes on the nose contrast with spicy notes and beautiful complexity. On the palate, it has a great onset; frank, direct, and sustained by beautiful red fruits throughout the tasting which linger in the mouth. Spicy and light wooden notes are present throughout.

 Receiving high praise from James Suckling, and 95-points from the Bordeaux tasting panel at Forbes, this wine is a joy to drink. Don't hesitate to lay some back for future enjoyment.
