Graves, Château Rahoul, Bordeaux, France 2014
Regular price £24.50
A member of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, Château Rahoul boasts an exceptionally diverse range of terroirs. The history of Château Rahoul began in 1646, when Chevalier Guillaume Rahoul was responsible for the construction of this pretty chartreuse, and gave it its name. The management of the Rahoul estate was entrusted to Dourthe in 2007. Today, the Graves white is ranked among the finest of the appellation, while the red is a wine of great finesse and elegance.
Merlot (78%) and Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Attractive intense colour. Perfumed and complex on the nose, bursting with liquorice and blackberries and a delicately toasty dimension. The generous palate is expressed through round, silky tannins and lovely freshness which underpins the balanced texture through to the long, savoury finish.
