La Chapelle d'Escurac AOC Medoc, 2015




Grape Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine was named after the 11th-century chapel which sits amongst Château d’Escurac’s vines. Many 2015 Bordeaux wines are coming into their own right now and this is no exception. It has a mellow bouquet with some meaty notes, undergrowth, coffee and vanilla laid over a fruit background. On the palate it is on the lighter side of medium bodied, excellent for drinking now and over the next few years with a fresh redcurrant, bitter cherry and spicy finish. The estate at Civrac has been owned by Jean-Marc Landureau’s family since 1934 and was originally purchased by his grandfather for breeding horses. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted on a gravel slope are traditionally pruned and trained in double guyot. 30% of the wine was aged in new oak barrels for four months, the balance in tanks with a rotation every four months.
