Our oenologists' opinion
Dark garnet colour. Frank nose, open with vanilla notes, toasted still a little dominant, boxwood and pepper. Good balance, frank and full-bodied, warm point, ripe tannins, which will melt away. Good straightforward finish.
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.

This magnificent stately home was founded in the 13th century by a son of Henry III of England, Edward Tyrgan.
Domain and appellation
Château de Tiregand
SItuated on the high hillsides of Pécharmant, this 405 hectare estate is listed in the inventory of Historical Monuments. The Château de Tiregand is the property of heirs of La Comtesse François de Saint-Exupéry.
- Terroir: The 43 hectare vineyard rests on soil composed of sand, gravel and an iron ore gravel subsoil.
- Viticulture: The estate promotes maturity of the grape by short pruning, control of the yields of each plot (green debudding and harvests), and leaf stripping on each side of the row.
- Vinification: A 8 to 10 day fermantation in tanks, with temperature control precedes a period of maceration for the wine "on marc" for almost 12 months in oak barrels with 20% barrels of 1 wine.
