Chateau Haut-Vigneau 2014
Situated in the commune of Martillac, this property was originally part of the estate belonging to Baron de Montesquieu.
In 1765, Belleyme, the royal geographer, published a map on which the site “Vigneau de haut” appears clearly planted with vines; today, this property belongs to Eric Perrin. Beginning in the 1980s, he began the long-term work of clearing the land and replanting a vineyard from scratch.
Winemaking at Haut-Vigneau is based on a great respect for its grapes (60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot) and terroir (deep Garonnaise gravel), together with careful and traditional aging (in 20% new barrels).
The result is a wine with very pleasing aromas of black fruit (blackberries, black currant) and subtle roasted notes (grilled and smoky).
