Chateau Valoux Pessac-Leognan

£24.00

PRODUCER: Chateau Valoux
SKU: VALOUXPESSLEOG

Description

An excellent example of the Pessac-Leognan appellation in Graves, Bordeaux, where the terroir with hilly relief brings unique gravel deposits rolled by the Garonne for nearly 2 million years.  Chateau Valoux present a perfected blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Grapes are hand harvested from small grand cru vineyards of limestone and clay soils before traditional vinification.

Deep ruby in colour, this wine shows an intense, pure nose of black fruits, bread and toasted almonds. The palate expresses ripe fruit flavour alongside currant and violet, silky tannins and refreshing acidity for superb balance. Able to age in bottle for 5 to 10 years. Try with a range of meats: grilled, braised or stewed lamb, beef, duck, pork or game. Alternatively, try with mushroom dishes, mature cheeses or camembert.

Chateau Valoux has produced wines under the management of neighbouring Chateau Bouscat, since 1929. The clay-limestone vineyards date back to the 17th century, and they have been awarded the envied status of Grand Cru Classe de Graves for their exceptional wines; one of only 16 with such status. The famed Lurton family of Bordeaux have overseen production since 1979 to add to their portfolio, which includes prestigious chateaux in Margaux and Barsac.
