Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Dark garnet colour. Nice frank and typical nose with hints of black fruit, boxwood, hints of black pepper. Good balance on a fleshy wine, ripe and supple tannins. Nice character, frank and straightforward.
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
Located in the Entre-deux-Mers wine region of Bordeaux, Château Chavrignac is distinguished by the integration of certified organic viticultural practices since 1964. These wines now carry the official AB label.
Terroir: The 28-hectare estate is planted on clay-limestone soils with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Malbec.
Viticulture: The implementation of environmentally friendly agricultural practices allows Château Chavrignac to carry the AB label. Fertilisers are based on compost and the vines are protected from disease by the use of the famous Bordeaux mixture and a small amount of sulphur. Harvesting is mechanical with manual sorting.
Vinification: The vinification is traditional with maceration and fermentation for 8 to 10 days in thermo-regulated vats and ageing in oak barrels.
