Winemaker's Notes

The Chateau St Sulpice Bordeaux Rouge is a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. This wine is vinified as if it were a "classified growth:" complete de-stemming, eight-day fermentation in new temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and aging in vats for several months before bottling. This approach emphasizes the natural red fruit characters. The wine exhibits black cherry, spice and plum notes, with great depth and balance.

The wine shows lots of red-fruit aromas. It is concentrated, full and dense in the mouth, with silky tannins and a supple finish.

Learn About Chateau Saint Sulpice

Chateau Saint Sulpice, Bordeaux Rouge, is a 100 acre estate situated in a village of the same name in the northern section of Entre-Deux-Mers, just south of St. Emilion.
