La Grande Dame de Chateau Lavagnac 2012 Bordeaux Superieur 0,75 l
10% Cabernet Franc
Owners : Michele & Philippe Riviere
Location : In the village of Sainte-Terre, South of the jurisdiction
Surface : 2 Ha
Soil : sand and clay
Integrated viticulture, thinning out of the leaves done by hand,
green harvest. Vinification in thermo-regulated stainless steel
vats. Ageing in barrels (100% new) for around 12 months.
The harmonious balance of these varietals gives this wine a very
delicate taste. The permanent work made in the purest tradition
of the Bordeaux vineyards, allows to produce a wine with an
intense red colour, a nose of ripe red fruits, slightly spiced with
vanilla notes and a delicate wooden taste. Attack in mouth is
supple. Well-balanced tannins give the wine a lot of freshness.
La Grande Dame is a fruity and harmonious wine.
This Bordeaux wine goes marvellously well with grilled meats
