Vineyard & Vinification Note

HVE3 and Terra Vitis certified (High environmental value certificates)

Vineyard surface : 52 Ha (2 Ha of which are white)

Soils: A rich diversity of soils. Stony outcrops and calcareous clay soils.

Harvest : Plot by plot. Optical sorting.

Vinification: Pre-fermentation cold maceration. Alcoholic fermentation, with very few manipulations (pumping-over, pigeage). Malolactic fermentation partially in barrels.

Ageing: Ageing in barrels takes place in an arched underground cellar with air-conditioning for 12-14 months. Cooperage savoir-faire and oak selection are combined when choosing the barrels so that they are best suited to the characteristics and style of Château La Garde wines.

Tasting Note

“Deep ruby-red in colour.  The wine unleashes abundantly ripe, red fruit aromas of strawberries which continue to develop. Initially supple and straightforward, the wine is rich, full-bodied, rounded and beautifully balanced, underpinned by delicate tannic structure. This harmonious wine culminates in an appealing, aromatic flourish on the finish.” Frédéric Bonnaffous, Dourthe Estates Director

James Suckling

Rather earthy and meaty character to the plums and mushrooms. Medium to full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Slightly funky at the end, but attractive. Drink after 2023. 89 Points, January 2021

Food Pairing

Very good match with game, red and white meat, cheese.
