Description

Château la Tuilerie du Puy covers more than 80 hectares of vineyards in the largest wine region of Bordeaux, Entre-Deux-Mers.  A family property since 1616, it was in 1979,that Jean-Pierre Regaud continued his father’s work and immediately began an ambitious project: equipping the Château with a modern winery, fully equipped with stainless steel vats and the latest innovations, including temperature control.   Michel Regaud took over the reins in 1996.

Vineyard & Winemaking – Plot by plot, each grape variety is harvested separately. The grapes are put into steel tanks during 4 to 6 weeks, which allows a slow and gentle extraction to protect the perfect expression of the terroir.  Each plot is fermented in individual stainless steel vats and then aged for 12 months.

Tasting note – A fabulous Merlot dominant blend (60% Merlot/30% Cabernet Sauvignon / 10% Cabernet Franc) with a mouth-watering cassis style. The added Cabernets provide a refined structure and natural complexity.
