A floral, sensual wine displaying bright crimson fruit, blood orange and wild strawberries. Rich, with a smooth structure and concentration. A sneaky St.Emilion alternative.
Merlot 85%, Cabernet Franc 15%
Le Grand Village is the original Bordeaux home of the Guinaudeau family, better known as the producers of Château Lafleur in Pomerol. Jacques and Sylvie Guinaudeau's home estate is situated in the commune of Mouillac in the canton of Fronsac. Over a third of Grand Village is planted with vines in the best and most suitable plots for viticulture. The rest of the estate is woodland or is used to rear cattle or produce cereal crops. It is an enchanting estate and one that despite its less exalted appellation is capable of producing excellent wines. It is also used as something of a guinea pig to test new ideas and practices before adopting them at Chateau Lafleur.
