  • 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 A beautiful purple with floral aromas on the nose (iris, peony) along with aromas of ripe fruit (cherry, peach), accompanied by spicy notes that develop into a powerful mouth feel and greedy tannins. This wine will partner well with red meats, grilled meats, game, and cheeses.
