Château Poitevin • Cru Bourgeois 2014

Wine tasting note

The 2014 Château Poitevin reveals an intense ruby color. A very expressive and complex nose with notes of strawberry, cherry as well as vanilla and floral hints. On the palate, the aromatic expression plays on spicy notes evolving towards black fruits. The structure is fleshy and silky. A very nice wine packed with complex flavors, freshness and a nice length in the mouth..

2014 • Notebook

Eventually, a good vintage! After a rainy and mild winter, the spring was marked by strong thermal variations making the growth a litle jerky. The summer was a bit cold and rainy but miraculously, the Gironde has experienced an exceptional Indian Summer that helped winemakers to gain confidence. September and October were sunny and hot, allowing the complete maturation of the different grape varieties. The grapes were harvested in excellent climatic conditions for all grape varieties and allowed to reach the level of a great vintage.
