A member of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, Château Rahoul boasts an exceptionally diverse range of terroirs. The history of Château Rahoul began in 1646, when Chevalier Guillaume Rahoul was responsible for the construction of this pretty chartreuse, and gave it its name. The management of the Rahoul estate was entrusted to Dourthe in 2007. Today, the Graves white is ranked among the finest of the appellation, while the red is a wine of great finesse and elegance.” Patrick Jestin.

Grape

70% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Petit Verdot

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Vintage 2009: Despite episodes of hail, the vintage has certainly not disappointed. After the hail of May 12th, which severely affected the parcels around the Château, thanks to an exceptional summer with extremely high temperatures and sunshine hours and an idyllic autumn, the grapes reached levels of ripeness rarely equalled. With extremely fruit-laden juices, the grapes are showing signs of concentration on every level, with relatively high alcohol levels being the only shortfall, given the impressive ripeness.

HARVEST: Merlot: September 30th to October 9th

Cabernet Sauvignon: October 9th to 13th

Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot: October 10th

AGEING: 12 months in barrels (25% new barrels).

Tasting Note

Concentrated, deep garnet in colour, red and black fruit aromas of generously ripe blackcurrant, blackberry and redcurrant dominate the bouquet. Initially soft on the palate, the wine develops impressively harmonious tannins and alcohol. The tannins are delicate and create a wine with abundant charm. Frédéric Bonnaffous, Dourthe Estates Director

Food Pairing

Perfect match with grilled or roasted meat, stuffed poultry, cheese, mushrooms fricassee.
