Château Puygueraud Francs Côtes de Bordeaux 2018
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Cotes de Francs|
The property was acquired by George Thienpont in 1946. He then replanted the vines towards the end of 1970's. From 1983 onwards, his son Nicolas began crafting the wine. For several years now, vineyard replanting has helped to improve the wine's precision thanks to rootstock tailored to the soil and high-quality clone or massal selection.
Coming from the talented Thienpont team, the 2018 Château Puygueraud is a juicy, up-front, undeniably delicious 2018 offering lots of perfumed, floral, and violet notes, sumptuous blue fruits, medium-bodied richness, and a juicy, balanced, lengthy style that keeps you coming back to the glass. The balance is spot on, as is the purity of fruit, and it's ideal for enjoying any time over the coming decade. The blend is 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec.
