MEDOC Rouge (Red)

Print the sheet

Ownership & history:

Château La Douce is a "niche-estate" in the Medoc, covering 6 hectares and producing 30 000 bottles per year.
The unique specificity of the property is to produce wine and to raise a local variety of lambs of a high culinary quality, known as the AOC "Agneau de Pauillac".

Vineyard & location:

The vines are young, having been planted in 2003. The soil is composed of clay and limestone, located in the northern part of the Medoc vineyard. The quality of the soil is particularly suitable for a good maturation of the Merlot grape.

Harvest, vinification & ageing:

Traditional Bordeaux vinification, with the aim being to respect the fruit and let it express itself as naturally as possible. The result is a ripe and silky expression of the Merlot grape. A proportion of the production benefits from French oak ageing for 6 months.

Tasting:

The 100% Merlot blend here makes for a juicy wine with flavours of chocolate and cherry. The soft fruit means that the wine tastes great at a young age.
