Chateau Lauduc, Classic Rouge 2017
Merlot 75%, Cabernet Sauvignon 25%
The nose is subtle, with dominant blackberry and cassis fruit and a fresh floral touch. Good length, soft tannins, and a beautiful combination of finesse and power. A wine for all occasions!
Chateau Lauduc has been in the hands of the Grandeau family for over a century. Originally a farm with dairy cows, fruit trees and Chasselas grapes, it wasn't until the 1970's that the vineyards were converted to Bordeaux varieties. Located just outside the city of Bordeaux on the Right Bank, Chateau Lauduc is a historic property with wines classified as Bordeaux Superiore, one of 7 appellations d'orgine controlee or AOCs. These wines can be found throughout the Gironde and use the same grapes used in top growths. They may not be as widely known as first-growths, but they are delicious and made for immediate consumption. Known for their tasty rose, deliciously fleshy red, and that their vineyards are still plowed by horses, it's no wonder Chateau Lauduc has become Bordeaux's hidden gem!
