Description

The iconic Chateau Plaisance built in 1886 was purchased by the Ducourt family in 1994, the well-established, old vines provided outstanding fruit material for this 100% Merlot. The vineyards are located right on the border of the Saint Emilion/Lalande-de-Pomerol appellations. The wine spent 12 months in 100% French oak (50% new and 50% in 1 year old) before a further 2 years in bottle prior to being released. With only 3000 bottles produced, this is impeccable rich Merlot at a quality and price that is only achievable from old vine, old world wine producers. Buy a case of this wine and enjoy with confidence through to 2030.

Smells

Black cherry, wild raspberry, warm baking spices and subtle dried herb complexities.

Tastes

Brooding and concentrated with a full mouth feel and fine chalky tannins, it’s unerring length matched by few at the price. Bold blackberry and boysenberry with liquorice, cocoa and subtle vanilla-oak adding plenty of charm. Enjoy in nice stemware on its own midwinter, or pair with strong flavoured protein inspired dishes, cellar for 10+ years.
