CHÂTEAU PLAIZIRS – CUVÉE PRESTIGE

In 1997, we decided to take over Château Plaizirs from our parents, who owned the estate since 1981. Their skills were very traditional ; my father aged his wines in huge barrels called foudres. After, taking over, we have expanded and modernized the estate. Today, it covers 38 hectares, and we have set up our storage and vinification cellars there.

Technical informations

Location : Mazion
Vineyard surface : 5 hectares
Soils : Clay-limestone for the most part with some plots with gravel deposits
Blend of grape variety : 90 % Merlot, 10 % Malbec
Wine-making process :

Cold maceration for 3-4 days prior to fermentation. Turbo-punching of the cap for gentle extraction. Length of maceration adapted according to the year. Aged in cement and stainless steel vats.

Tasting comments :

Intense deep color with purple glints. On the nose is a highly concentrated aroma of fresh blackcurrant. This continues on the palate, for a well-structured and supple delicate balance. The finish is clean, dominated by fresh summer berries. This unconventional style is very appealing.

Wine pairings :

Meats in sauce
