Located in the North West of the Ricaud property, rising up on a magnificent limestone-clay terroir, lies a beautiful small holding constructed towards the end of the 18th century, bearing the name Garreau, which is also the name of the parcel of vines.
Set in a natural amphitheatre, the vineyard stretches over the most magnificent slopes in the region, where the natural drainage and aspect are ideal for the vines. A number of Garreau’s stunning clay-limestone plots are particularly suited to cultivating Merlot, where it reveals all its fresh, smooth and rounded character. A few months in the winery suffice to reveal lovely intense aromas, and deliver a harmonious Bordeaux Supérieur wine, which can be enjoyed in its early years.
18% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard & Vinification Note
On the stunning limestone-clay terroir of Garreau, Merlot could not be better served to reach its full potential. Here the vines find just the right quantity of regular water to reach peak ripeness. The true character of the variety is thus respected, in the constant quest for optimum concentration, but never to the detriment of fruit freshness, and a round and supple character. Traditional vinification in individual batches in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks; cold pre-fermentation maceration introduced in certain batches
Château Garreau Bordeaux Supérieur unveils its intense, generously deep, ruby red appearance. Cherry, damsons and redcurrant fruit notes dominate on the concentrated bouquet. On the wonderfully rounded palate, red fruit aromas, enhanced by silky tannins define the wine. Vegan.
Perfect with charcuterie, cold meats red or white meats poultry, cottage pie and vegetable gratin, cheeses such as goats, camembert and brie.
