Château Siaurac Plaisir de Siaurac Lalande de Pomerol 2014
Ch â teau Siaurac is one of the most famous properties in Lalande-de-Pomerol, which is a satellite appellation of Pomerol. The family is oriented toward quality in order to produce wines with great expression and typicity of the terroir . The 'Plaisir de Siaurac' is made from the young vines of Ch â teau Siaurac, where the clay and gravel vines are cultivated with sustainable viticulture. The Ch â teau has been certified since January 2009; they conduct grassing between rows, grapes and leaves removal, hand harvesting and double sorting by hand. The average age of the vineyard is between 25 and 30 years. The 'Plaisir' has been made by an exceptional team as well: the technical director from Chateau Latour, Penelope Godefroy, has worked with, Jean-Claude Berrouet, who was the winemaker at Petrus for 40 years. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, this tastes rich, velvety and pure with notes of cherry, mocha, licorice & rose petals. We have also been long-time fans of Chateau Siaurac so this new release was particularly exciting.
