  • Winemaker Notes Domaine du Tracot has been owned by the Dubost family since 1902. Its origin was found in writings and traces on the main building. With his two sons, Corentin and Joffrey, Jean-Paul hopes that the 4th generation will continue the family tradition in providing wines that reflect their terroir, the culture of the vineyard and respecting the environment and soil. 2015 is a warm vintage with an early harvest and ripe fruit.
  • Tasting Notes Beautifully balanced with lovely fresh fruit, real energy and charm. The wine is ripe with red fruits and rounded tannins, and shows exceptional concentration. Smooth and refreshing with cherry and a smoky finish.
