CHATEAU LA GUÉRINIÈRE
SAINT-EMILION Rouge (Red)

Print the sheet

Ownership & history:

Château La Guérinière is owned and run by the Rambaud family.

Vineyard & location:

The vineyard spans the villages of Saint-Pey-d'Armens and Saint-Hippolyte. Fifteen hectares of vines - which are on average 30 years old - are planted on a sandy soil plain.

Harvest, vinification & ageing:

Sustainable farming is carried out at the estate, using techniques such as grassing over between the vines. The harvest is carried out by machine and the grapes are sorted by hand. There are two sets of tanks in the winery - the temperature-controlled, stainless steel ones are used for the vinfication process and the concrete ones are used for maturing the wine. The philosophy that drives the winemaking at Château La Guérinière is one of respecting the grapes and allowing them to express themselves naturally.

Tasting:

The wine is deep purple in colour and shows red fruit (strawberry) on the nose. As is typical for right-bank Bordeaux, we have a bold expression of Merlot on the palate here, with a mouthfeel that is both fleshy and silky. This wine will make a particularly good accompaniment to less intensely flavoured meats and poultry - rabbit, turkey or chicken for example - and will of course go well with cheese.
