Chateau de Parenchere Bordeaux Superieur 2019, 375ml, Bordeaux, France

Chateau de Parenchere rises in the heart of a green and hilly landscape situated 38 km from Saint-Emilion, at the crossroads of the Gironde and the Dordogne departments. It therefore benefits from a very particular Terroir in Bordeaux, composed of clay-limestone with a high clay content, which partly explains the strength of the wines produced on the vineyard. This traditional wine is produced using vines aged 20 years on average and is usually made up of all the different grape varieties grown on the property. The blend is generally around: 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec. Merlot gives it suppleness, fruitiness and roundness; Cabernet-Sauvignon provides structure and additional tannic density. The two complementary grape-varieties will give this wine a greater complexity. Cabernet Franc is particularly appreciated for its aromatic finesse, and Malbec for its color and its spicy character. This traditional Parenchere blend is generally very fleshy, with a very deeply colored robe. Characterized by a good balance between fruit and tannin, it displays distinct red fruit aromas with a long, sustained finish.
