Chateau Noaillac Cuvee 81 Vin de France NV 75cl
Tasting Note: "Launched to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Chateau Noaillac, a Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend that comes from some of the original parcels of the propety. Traditional vinification methods are used and there are no added sulphites, and all of this makes a style of wine that would have been recognised 40 years ago but isn't seen today."
Producer: A rising star. Damien, Marc Pages’s grandson, took over the running of this property some years ago. Some 40 years ago, they realised that the soil in this northerly part of the Médoc once produced excellent wines and the land had been abandoned. Now with 46 hectares, and the vines becoming older, 20-25 years on average, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, a new chai with rows of temperature controlled stainless steel vats and an immaculate barrel cellar. Château Noaillac is now producing succulent, lovely early drinking claret.
