  • Winemaker Notes At Chateau Puynormond, they believe that blending two grape varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Franc is the winning combination. The Merlot brings the fruit, some color and makes the wine flesh and the Cabernet Franc adds some complexity as well as a floral nose, the mouth is full of tannins but with a velvet finish.
  • Tasting Notes This wine is deep ruby, which is tinged with more sustained dark shades with clear, bright purple tints. It gives intense aromas of cherries, blackberries, and black currants with hints of spice; vanilla, cinnamon. It offers a warm, round oak, enhanced by hints of jam. This is a delicious and generous wine with the same flavors on the palate than on the nose. The attack is full and supple. It will go perfectly with salty or sweet foods and your everyday meals as well as with the most elaborate dishes. Red wine and chocolate are a wonderful couple!

  • Vineyard The weather of the region is strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean; which gives us beautiful back seasons, favorable to a good maturity of the berries. The vineyard is managed with supervised control in order to respect the fauna. The first tool is not the vine but its terroir, and you need to make it live, breath and increase its microbial life. Merlot represents 90% of the planted grape varieties and Cabernet-Franc 10%.
