BORDEAUX | FRANCE

Chateau Cote de Baleau is a small vineyard in the St. Emilion appellation managed by Sophie Fourcade - planted to 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Chateau Cote de Baleau is situated just outside of the St. Emilion village. The terroir consists of limestone and sand soils, located not far from La Gomerie. The age of the vines is impressive as the vines are on average, close to 40 years old.

Iron, smoke, savory herb, dried rose petal, mint and fennel are some of the notes that emerge from the 2012 Côte de Baleau. There is good depth in the glass, even if some slightly angular contours remain. The perfumed, aromatic finish adds to the wine's near-term appeal. Drink 2016-2025

This is the last wine made by Sophie Fourcade before she sold her three estates (including Clos St. Martin and Les Grandes Murailles) to the Cuvelier family, who also own Clos Fourtet, which lies adjacent to Les Grandes Murailles.

Yes and this is the last vintage that the price will remain what it is being offered today!
