Mature Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux of depth and concentration
Showing a medium body with well integrated wood ageing and firm, yet friendly tannins. Now in its prime you get aromas of wild strawberries, black cherries and fresh sage. Earthy and savoury on the palate with plums, blueberries, tobacco, dried herbs and mushrooms. Impressive depth and represents great value.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
While Châteaux La Pirouette is a relatively young winery in the Medoc it has already made a name for itself by producing wines that could be mistaken for more established Châteaux. This is in large part thanks to Michèle Roux. A winemaker for 40 year, she has turned this family-owned winery into a model of consistency, reflected in the numerous awards following her name. With a focus on sustainability, her wines retain the “Cru Bourgeois” status. This blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot and is emblematic of the fact that this is a classification that continually delivers exceptional quality to price in the region.
