The “Méthode Nature” wine of Château Les Aubiers. “Aubier” is a typical tree of the region surrounding the historic estate of our family. Most commonly, “aubier” means sapwood : the living part of a tree, right under the bark. It transports sap and protects the heartwood during winter. Château Les Aubiers is a loyal expression of the local history, of our landscape richness and of my sensitivity towards environmental issues.

80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
A beautiful deep colour with purple glints. The nose is ripe of dense fruit, emphasised by spicy, woody notes. On the palate, the frank attack softens with well-integrated tannins. An expression of ripe fruit is underpinned with freshness. Velvety and pleasant in style, with great generosity.
