Château Puy Galland, Francs Côtes de Bordeaux 2016
APPELLATION: Francs Côtes de Bordeaux
GRAPES: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
TASTING NOTES: Touted by winelovers as the perfect “Bordeaux for tonight”, this wine certainly lives up to its hype. There is a round, substantial, and almost fleshy dark-fruitiness to this wine. Classy, with a dash of brooding elegance, you’ll note a refined blend of black cherry, cassis, and dark cocoa. Authentic and richly flavored, this fruit-driven Right Bank Bordeaux delivers craveable, mouthwatering flavors. Berard Labatut suggests pairing his wine with foie gras, but we’d recommend an easy weeknight pairing of grilled pork chop or an indulgent mac’n’cheese.
About the Producer
Bernard Labatut is the third generation to work the vines at Château Puy Galland and is preparing his 29-year-old son to soon take the reins. Family and tradition are at the heart of everything the family does, going so far as to hand-sort grapes from the vineyard themselves, ensuring everything that ends up in the bottle has reached optimal ripeness (and therefore optimal quality). Bernard is dedicated to quality, which additionally has led to him working with oenologist Jean Philippe Faure, who works at winemaker-to-the-stars Michel Rolland's oenology firm.
