Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Château La Prade, with its old vines planted on chalk, has very low yields and receives additional care in the vineyard. Its wines are aged, on their lees, in 50% new oak barrels. The preservation of fruit character, a rich, round body and a great tannic structure make this Merlot dominated wine one of the best expressions of the Côtes de Francs, alongside the more masculine Château Puygueraud.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark and ripe, with a lush edge to the plum sauce and dark fig notes that's held in check by a charcoal frame. Bitter orange and Campari hints flash through the finish, with a briary feel as well."
