Chateau Falfas Cotes-du-Bourgs, "Les Demoiselles", 2016

21.00

With 20 hectares of vineyards planted on rolling hillsides of Bayon in the Côtes de Bourg, Château Falfas has a winemaking heritage that dates back to the 14th century. The Château was in fact one of the very first in Bordeaux to practise organic and biodynamic methods. Today Château Falfas is owned by Véronique Cochran, who is building on the traditions of the past with a very simple philosophy: the best wines are not “made” but rather “grown”. She remains passionate about practicing biodynamic principles to extract the very essence of the terroir, producing authentic, rich and generous wines. 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Grown on predominantly gravel, clay & limestone, the vineyards are less than a mile from the Gironde river. All grapes are manually harvested, followed by long and careful vinification. The grapes are blended and age in the vat for 6-8 months. Aromas of soft, ripe fruits on the nose, with an explosion of red summer fruits and strawberry jam on the palate. A delicious wine with lighter tannins, made to be consumed within 6 years of bottling.
