CHÂTEAU LA MAURIANE
2012 Puisseguin Saint Emilion
|Grapes||Merlot, Cab Franc|
|Sub-district||Saint Emilion & Satellites|
|Village||Puisseguin Saint Emilion|
85% Merlot with 15% Cabernet Franc. Rich almost plummy nose. Plump and yet not sweet, very richly full of black fruit flavour. Fleshy and goes on well. Second sample away from Chateau was oxidised on nose, but all the body and richness still there. This is the first vintage which is officially 'organic wine', a new and long fought-for designation which goes a little further than 'wine made from organically-grown grapes'. Rating: 90-90 L&S (Apr 2013)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
La Mauriane is a small vineyard within Château Rigaud, a Puisseguin-St-Emilion property owned by Pierre Taïx, who owns a few other properties in Puisseguin and the neighbouring Côtes de Castillon. La Mauriane is a micro-cuvée, made by Pierre, who is a university lecturer (economics) in his other life. One of the three parcels that make this extraordinary wine consists of eighty year old vines planted by his grandfather. The vineyard here is farmed organically. 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
