Chateau Haut Pougnan Rouge, Magnum
Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine Region: Bordeaux, France
Tasting Notes: The wine is predominantly Merlot (80%) & Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) with support in a classic red Bordeaux blend. Lovely soft bramble fruit flavours with vanilla notes from time spent ageing in oak barrels.
The Estate: In the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers in the Bordeaux wine-producing region, near Creon, the vineyards of Chateau Haut-Pougnan spread on the slopes of the right bank of the Garonne, with superb clay-limestone soil and gravel.
That is the nature of calcareous clay these soils resulting in very fine wines with subtle bouquet.
Suggested food and wine pairing: This red Bordeaux wine pairs really well with roast lamb and most red meats.
