Château Poitevin • Cru Bourgeois 2015

Wine tasting note

The 2015 vintage of Château Poitevin has a beautiful ruby color and offers a powerful and complex nose. An explosion of crushed ripe fruit aromas (red berries, dark stawberries) with spicy hints and perfectly integrated toasty flavors. This wine is well structured, juicy, with silky tannins, enhanced by a balanced acidity. A beautiful finish and length in the mouth.

2015 • Notebook

The 2015 vintage is a synergy of two exceptional vintages, the 2005 and the 2010. Nature offered us optimal climatic conditions throughout the vine cycle, which enabled us to harvest at full maturity all of our plots.The maturation phase was optimal with soft wind to limit the humidity in the clusters and thus the appearance of botrytis.This vintage gives wines of great aromatic richness, with an interesting tannic structure.
