Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Its dark ruby color introduces a nose of red fruits, menthol, and spices. The palate is nervous with a finish on melted tannins.

Features

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.

These are the most "poor" soils that make the greatest wines.

Domain and appellation

  • Château Lacaussade Saint-Martin

    The Château Lacaussade-Saint-Martin dates back to the 19th century. Repurchased in the early 90’s by Jacques Chardat, the vineyard’s size keeps expanding since.

     

    • Terroir: Located on the edge of the Gironde right bank, the vineyard lays on clay-limestone soils.

     

    • Viticulture: Much care is given to the vines in order to only produce fruits that are perfectly ripened.

     

    • Vinification: The winemaking process is orchestrated by the oenologist Eric Delacroix. The maceration and fermentation is handled plot-by-plot. The wine ages for 6 months in oak barrels.
