Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau Hyot is a deep ruby color, with a clear shine, revealing a structured nose of ripe fruit with hints of pepper. Remarkable balance and soft silky tannins sustain a long and memorable finish.
My Notes:

About Chateau Hyot:

Chateau Hyot showcases the masterful skill of winemaker Amelie Aubert and consultant Michel Rolland. The wine is a Merlot-based blend, from 40 year-old vines, with Cabernet Franc bringing sophisticated aromas and silky tannins, and a dose of Cabernet Sauvignon for a structural backbone.

A deep respect for the vine is the driving force behind Amelie Aubert's philosophy and approach to making wine. "Quality is not possible with quantity," she explains, "and I want my wine to capture the essence of this fantastic terroir."
