Château Tour d’Horable

I joined the family estate in 2008, founding EARL Vignobles Faytout to perpetuate the know-how built up by my family over five generations. The Château Puisseguin La Rigodrie vines were my grandmother’s, and those at La Tour d’Horable belonged to my grandfather, who came from a family of coopers. But the family tree doesn’t end there: the parents of some of my employees worked with my grandparents. A true family business! The wines we craft together are expressive and authentic, just like our soil and our winegrowers.

The locality where the vines are situated is called Horable. There used to be windmills along the ridge of the hillside. Today the very few that are left no longer have their sails, making them look more like towers.

Tasting comments :

The colour is deep; the powerful nose is a delicate combination of caramel, vanilla and intense fruit. The palate is clean with firm tannins, nuanced with crushed blackcurrant. The delicate whole is very powerful yet also subtle and elegant. This is a well-crafted wine by an expert winemaker.
