Château Thénac Côtes de Bergerac Rouge

Château Thénac Côtes de Bergerac Rouge

A blend of 58% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc; hand-harvested from the warmest and most premium vineyard sites. Similar in style and weight to a modern Grand Cru Classé Saint-Émilion, but if anything, it shows additional complexity due to a large proportion of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 18 months ageing in new oak barriques adds a toasty and smoky complexity to the blackcurrant, sweet plum, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and spice.
