Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, April 2009,
    Score: 89-92

    Deep, fruity and plump, this medium-full bodied wine is mouthfilling, moreish and just so easy to like. No hard edges in sight. Just lots of ample, velvety fruit and ripe tannins. Despite its upfront appeal, it offers impressive concentration and length suggesting that this will be approachable young yet will have the potential to age. It finishes on black cherry and chocolate. Absolutely delicious.

    This straightforward, pleasant wine offers sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of licorice and herbs. Consume this easy-going effort over the next 2-3 years. Drink: 2011 - 2014

  • WS

    Wine Spectator, April 2009,
    Score: 86-89

    Subtle raspberry and mineral character, with medium body and a fresh finish. A balanced, fruity and refined Puygueraud. Half the normal harvest. 70 percent Merlot, 25 percent Cabernet Franc, 5 percent Malbec.

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

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.
