The second wine of Chateau Monconseil Gazin based in the village of Plassac.

 

The vineyards are situated on the hillside above the village, just to the south of Blaye. Here the clay/limestone soils provide good drainage and encourage a deep root system for the vines. The vineyards have a south/south west aspect giving excellent conditions for ripening the grapes.

 

Fermentation is in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats followed by 12 months in mainly old oak.

 

A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is very dark in the glass with lots of red berry aromas. The palate is full, with juicy fruit and firm tannins. Very well made and excellent value claret.
