Story

The Château Saint-Aubin is located on the left bank of Bordeaux in a small village named Saint-Sauveur. It it in the most northern part of Bordeaux. The Médoc appelation was born while the Dutch drained water into the area, creating swamps and marshlands. It was not until the 17th century that, with the help of windmills, the area was dried. This estate is family owned since 1928, Vincent being the third generation winemaker.

Vineyard

The soil is of a classic sand, gravel and soft clay composition. Each plot differs with regard to the exact soil components best suited to different varietals. The Petit Verdot especially thrives in this environment. Manual harvest occurs between end of September and mid October, with about a 55 hl/ha yield.

Vinification

Maceration and fermentation last 25 days, followed by 18 months of aging in oak barrels (12% new).

Tasting Notes

The wine opens with aromas of blackcurrant, black berries and prune. The mouth is round and elegant with notes of black fruit and spice. The finish is well balanced, lingering with supple tannins.

Food Pairing

This wine is idea with grilled vegetables, beef, or lamb.
