Chateau Les Tourelles du Barrail 2016

Winery Notes
“This wine exhibits a dark ruby color. On the nose, there are notes of ripe fruits and wood spice notes. Flavors of blackberry, plum, and black raspberry are followed by a mild toasty oak and vanilla note in the finish.”

Haut Barrail is a small 12 hectare estate owned by Cyril Gillet whose family bought the estate in the 1980’s and have set about renovating it entirely since then. The vineyards are on gentle slopes facing the Gironde with Clay/Limestone soils more similar to St Emilion than the Gravel of the Southern Medoc – and for this reason 70% of plantings are Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Viticulture is ‘Lutte Raisonée’ (Sustainable Viticulture), which allows the vineyards to speak but does also mean that Cyril is able to take necessary action to protect his crop.

Les Tourelles de Barrail is the second wine which is made from a 3 hectare parcel of younger vines, 50% Cabernet and 50% Merlot which is aged in 20% Oak and 80% in tank.
