Château Bois Pertuis is located in St Christophe de Double, near the Double forest, famous for its merrain oaks, used in barrel making.
This estate stretches over a terroir 20 km north of Saint-Emilion. Formerly known as 'Les Hauts de Saint Emilion' this region has a long tradition of wine-growing. The terroir at Château Bois Pertuis is made up of gravel and sand which brings finesse, and of clay which provides richness. Château Bois Pertuis produces a red Bordeaux wine that is well balanced and round. The blending of the noble varieties, mostly Merlot, results in a very fine wine, close to those of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion. The vineyard is planted to 86% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc. Serve with your finest red meat dishes, French cheeses, especially Comté gruyere and pâté.
James SucklingA really sophisticated wine for a regular red Bordeaux, this has a classic, cassis nose and lovely ripeness on the palate, the soft tannins neatly balancing the medium-full body. Long and remarkably polished finish for the humble category. Drink or hold.
