From: Montravel, South-West France
Varietal: 80% Merlot , 20% Cabernet Franc
Tasting Notes: The deep, intense aromas of this wine mirror both its appearance and its feeling on the palate, which is dominated by plum, cherry, and blackberry bramble notes, undertones of minerality derived from chalky limestone soils, and a silky smooth tannin from the 12 months this wine spent aging in 30% new oak barrels.
Pairing: Excellent with meats and cheeses.
About. Chateau Puy-Servain is located high in the Montravel and Bergerac appellations of the southwest of France. The estate takes its name, Puy-Servain, from the name of the locality Puy-Servain, which means ‘windy summit’ as it is located on a windy peak. Owned by Daniel Hecquet, one of the region’s best and most innovative winemakers, an accomplished oenologist who honed his craft while working at Chateau d’Yquem and Chateau Figeac (two famous Bordelaise estates). The Hecquet family has owned the estate for three generations.
The 47 hectares of vines are sustainably farmed and are located in Bergerac, Montravel, Pécharmant, Côte de Montravel, and Haut Montravel. Haut Montravel and Côtes de Montravel are known for their sweet wines, while Montravel AOC is known for dry red and white wines. Located in the Lamothe-Montravel sector of France in the western part of Bergerac, Montravel is close to Bordeaux geographically, but its wines are more similar to those from Bergerac.
Like much of the southwest of France, Montravel’s climate is primarily influenced by the Dordogne River. The River’s gravelly banks are often the best sites for vineyards. In addition to gravel, the soils here have a lot of limestone.
