Wine Profile

tasting notes

Attractive intense colour. Perfumed and complex on the nose, bursting with liquorice and blackberries and a delicately toasty dimension.  The generous palate is expressed through round, silky tannins and lovely freshness which underpins the balanced texture through to the long, savoury finish.

78% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon

vineyard notes

After a promising start to the year, a dull, gloomy summer meant ripening got off to a slow start.  Any worries were lifted towards the end of August with the arrival of exceptional, lasting weather conditions.

While the quality of the vintage owes a great deal to the excellent late-season, a vintage of this quality would not be possible without considerable work in the vineyards earlier in the season to ensure pristine quality in the vines and stunning fruit. Summer finally set in August 27th lasting right through until the end of October, kickstarting ripening once again in Château Rahoul’s predominant Merlot, and creating optimum conditions to progress the Cabernets. Pre and post soaking in the lovely red grapes revealed the full potential of the aromas and silky, ripe tannins.
