Pourpre de Château de Barbe, Côtes de Bourg

Pourpre de Château de Barbe, Côtes de Bourg

The Pourpre is made from grapes selected from the property's best vineyard plots and is a blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Malbec. After a pre-ferment cold maceration lasting up to six days, the wine undergoes a long cool fermentation followed by a year ageing in French oak, 50% new. Fleshy and structured with soft tannins, there is plenty of ripe fruit and a note of wild mint.
