Good medium ruby. Enticing floral aromas of raspberry, fresh red plum and sweet oak. Creamy-rich and silky, with good generosity to the red fruit flavors. Finishes with civilized tannins, a trace of warmth, and a lingering note of cassis. Not the last word in complexity but I find this hard to resist. The best Puy-Blanquet I can recall at this stage of development
A respect for tradition and quality is what makes Puy-Blanquet special. Instead of following the trend, vineyard manager Pierre Meunier has continued plowing the soils to ensure optimal maturity of the fruit. Green harvesting, leaf cropping and harvesting are done by hand.Overlooking the Dordogne valley in the heart of Saint-Etienne de Lisse, Château Puy-Blanquet has northern and eastern blocks that enjoy the morning sunshine. There are 49.42 acres of planted acreage on soils of clay and chalk.
