Chateau Donjon de Bruignac Bordeaux Superieur 'Premium' 2016

The site of Chateau Donjon de Bruignac has a long history, dating back some 5000 years. Here, a Gallo-Roman villa flourished from 1 A.D.-3 A.D., followed by the current castle and dungeon, which were erected in 1300. The property has cultivated vines since the year 1000. This Bordeaux Supérieur vineyard site is planted to 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, creating a structured wine, loaded with supple tannins & silky dark fruit and cedar notes.

Merlot

Deliciously zaftig Bordeaux grape that shed its second-banana-to-Cabernet Sauvignon status to become a star in its own right. Early-ripening softly textured yet often very serious (see: POMEROL).

Bordeaux, France

France's Gironde River estuary and its most prolific wine zone. Aristocratic reds from 'the Cabernets' and Merlot are complemented by a smaller number of whites both dry and sweet (Sauternes).
