Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Domain and appellation
Château la croix Blanche
This property, which is part of the Francs-Côtes-de-Bordeaux AOC with "Château la croix Blanche" and "le Prévôt", was bought in 1990 by a group of epicurean friends, lovers of vines and wine, all coming from different backgrounds, the hotel business, oenology...
They are headed by a former Arts and Crafts engineer: C. DELMAS, and a very talented winegrower/vigneron: F. MAURIN.
Under the impetus of these two leaders, the farm quickly went into organic conversion, and then into organic production. It produces wines regularly cited in guides over the years (HACHETTE, BETTANE & DESSEAUVE...) or appearing on the list of major references (Accor [Mercure, Sofitel, Pullman] Maisons des polytechniciens and Arts et métiers...).
Grapes Merlot, Cabernet Franc
- Merlot : 85.0%
- Cabernet Franc : 15.0%
