From: Bordeaux, France
Varietal: Merlot 55%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Cabernet Franc 15%
Tasting Notes: In the glass, this wine is dark and plummy, but not densely concentrated. A very fresh and floral nose, showing forest cherry, blueberries, wild strawberry, under scents of lavender and violets. On the palate, there is a crisp blackberry and raspberry character, with richer plums - joined by herbs, salt and graphite. A fresh, bitter note of dark citrus pops above an ever-lasting flavor of earl grey tea on the nervy finish. Complex, clean, and mouthwatering - this is a winter wine with great energy! David Hatzopoulos
Hailing from Saumur where she grew up in a winemaking family, Véronique and her husband, John Cochran purchased 20 hectares of vines close to the Gironde river outside the town of Bourg in the mid-1980s. These vines are surrounded by another 15 hectares of forest. Sadly, John passed away in 2009, but Véronique continues to make some of the most compelling wines in the area.'
Véronique was one of the earliest adopters of biodynamic farming in the region, having converted the entire estate in 1988. This is no doubt an influence from her father, François Bouchet, one of the pioneering farmers, researchers, and authors in the fields who started farming his own estate, Domaine de Château Gaillard, using these methods in the 1960s. All work in the vineyard is done by hand, and occasionally with draught horses for light tillage, and the average age of the vines is around 35-40 years old.
