Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, February 2010

An impressive Côtes de Francs that delivers loads of fruit and velvety tannins with other nuanced elements of spicy cedar and leather. Youthful and exuberant yet on the cusp of drinking, this wine has the concentration to age and should provide lots of pleasure.

Producer

Château Puyguéraud

This 35 hectare property was acquired by George Thienpont in 1946. He subsequently replanted the vines in the 1970's. Nicolas, his son, is now responsible for the winemaking. Chateau Puygueraud is produced mainly from Merlot with, however, a proportion of Cabernet that is quite high for the region as well as a touch of Malbec with its peppery character. In 2005, all the Cabernet Sauvignon was pulled up and Cabernet Franc planted in its place. This variety is earlier-ripening and is better suited to the terroir of the Cotes de Francs. 12-16 months are spent barrel ageing the wine with 40% new barrels each year.

Region

Côtes de Francs, Red Bordeaux

Côtes de Francs is a small Bordeaux Appellation situated between St Emilion and Bergerac. Vineyards are planted on high clay and limestone slopes to make mostly well-structured red wine from Cabernet Franc and Merlot such as Ch Pugueraud.
