Description

Château Ricaud’s revival can be mainly attributed to Cadillac in Côtes de Bordeaux. Here, the wines reveal the finest expression of Merlot cultivated on clay-limestone soils and Cabernet Sauvignon on gravel.

The consistently high standards of recent vintages have made this a rising star in Côtes de Bordeaux, offering well-structured, complex wines, combining intense fruit with lovely soft character.

Tasting Note

Lovely bright garnet in appearance. On the nose, fruit character instantly defines this wine, delivering intense aromas of red berry fruits and cherries. This fresh and fruity profile is mirrored on the palate, underpinned by a generous, smooth structure and well-integrated oak. This delicious, full-flavoured impression lingers appealingly on the finish. Frédéric Bonnaffous, Dourthe Estates Director

Food Pairing

Red and white meat (entrecôte bordelaise, minute steak, beef tartare, neck of lamb, leg of mutton, duck magret), vegetables and side dishes (gratin dauphinois), cheese (Mimolette, Cheddar, Gruyère, Parmesan).
