Red raspberry, ripe plum and juicy currants. Hints of earth and minerality to this fruit driven Cotes de Castillon wine. Dark fruits with hints of spice are wrapped up with a plush, richly textured mouthfeel.
The Boulon family are true protectors of their land. In the 1860s a member of the Bourlon family helped conquer Mexico under the French emperor Napoleon III, then married and settled there. Many years later Henri's father came to Europe to study. Having fallen ill, he was told the country air of Puisseguin was the best cure. There he met his wife, whose family owned Château Guibot La Fourvieille. He never returned to Mexico, but instead bought Vieux Château Guibeau next door.
The vineyards are now operated by Brigitte, Henri Bourlon’s daughter, and her husband Eric. Brigitte and Eric are convinced that the quality of their wines is the direct result of the respect they have for the land that they love. They mainly grow Merlot, but also Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The property is located over one of the highest points of the Bordeaux region in the village of Puisseguin.
