90% MERLOT, 10% CABERNET FRANC
Puynormond Montagne Saint-Emilion
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. 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. For a better quality of our grapes, the leaves are manually thinned and they practice green harvests.
A deep ruby color with dark violet reflections. It gives intense aromas of red fruit with vanilla and cinnamon, and a warm woody scent, enhanced by jam aromas. Delicious and generous, full and supple.
Situated at the commune of Montagne, between prestigious neighbors; Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, Château Puynormond overlooks an amphitheater of vines from a clayey terrior.
