Tasting Notes

An elegantly matured Bordeaux Superieur with surprising persistence. Named after the limestone soils ('palus') of the vineyards, this blend of 70% Merlot with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot is showing lovely earthy, leather and licorice notes along with cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant. A stunning value.

The Producer

Château Plaisance

The construction of Château Plaisance dates back to the 1780s, however its vineyards are much older. Bordering the Margaux appellation, Château Plaisance's ten-hectares vineyards overlook the Garonne River.

The 'palues' in the soil are mostly composed of clay, with a small percentage of sand. Its particularity is that it is located only a few meters away from the Garonne River. The 'palues' were accessed through a draining technique implemented in Bordeaux by the Dutch. The 'palues' contain a large amount of sediments making it a rich and fertile soil. In the past, wines produced on 'palues' were considered the best of their appellation.
