Winery Notes:
Location:
Cháteau Desclau is in Tresses, 10 kilometers east of Bordeaux on the road to Libourne and St. Emilion. This is the top of Bordeaux’s Entre-Deux-Mers where the alluvial soils are rich and privileged.

Story:
Desclau is based on a farm formerly owned by Cháteau Senailhac, an extremely well regarded left-bank estate. It’s the only Bordeaux Superieur estate we know that employs all have major red Bordeaux varieties.

Blend:
The 2010 composition, from a classic vintage, is one of the estate’s best ever. this silky, oak-aged blend of 43% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 7% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot is perfect for current drinking after six years of bottle age.

Processing:
The five grapes are fermented by plot in stainless steel tanks before blending by lot. The estate’s main emphasis is tannin management by careful extraction.

Aging:
Up to 2 years in a mix of various sizes of oak and temperature controlled tanks.

Tasting Notes:
The wine is velvety and mouth filling on the palate with lots of fruit and excellent structure.
