Château La Garance

AOC Graves

Château La Garance-SM

In 1986, Alain Thiénot bought this property in Graves around the same time as Château Rahoul, a member of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux. When he was about to release the first vintages, he named the property after his daughter Garance.

Since 1988, the property has formed an integral part of Château Rahoul and benefits from the same ambitious policy undertaken in these vineyards by Alain Thiénot. For Château La Garance, the objective is simple: to provide a good introduction to the Great Wine of Château Rahoul and to reveal exactly to what extent the diversity of the property’s terroirs is an advantage to creating fine Graves wines.

Vinification & Ageing

Temperature controlled stainless-steel vats, of various capacities, adapted to a plot by plot wine making.

Tasting notes

Attractive ruby-red in colour. The wine reveals red fruit aromas of strawberries on the nose, combined with a floral hint of lilac. Wonderfully full on the palate, backed by well-rounded tannins. Very well-balanced overall, and culminating in an attractive finish.

Blend

89% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot

Tasting notes

Lovely ruby colour, lively and bright. The very pleasant nose develops aromas of fresh red fruits. This fruity ripeness culminates on a juicy, full-flavoured palate. Round and well-balanced, the wine evolves towards a souple and rather long finish.

 

Blend

60% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot

Tasting notes

Appealing bright ruby red in colour. Red berry fruit aromas pre-empt a soft palate, with delicious fruit, generous and complex. The wine is backed by a nice tannic structure with a lovely finish.

 

Blend

85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting notes

Ruby colour, brillant eand limpid. Le nez présente des notes aromatiques de petits fruits rouges, de framboise. En bouche, rondeur et souplesse accompagnent une jolie trame tannique. La dégustation s’achève sur une finale savoureuse portée par une note délicatement épicée.

Bright ruby red in appearance. The wine opens on the bouquet with chocolate notes, and a hint of smoky character typical of these Graves soils. Rounded and fleshy on the palate, this full-flavoured wine culminates in an appealing finish.

Lovely ruby colour. The nose offers explosive fresh, red fruit aromas of strawberries, combined with a hint of smoky character. Good volume on the wonderfully balanced palate, with savoury notes and richness underpinned by rounded tannins. 

Blend

Tasting notes

Deep ruby in appearance. The mature bouquet interweaves red fruit aromas with notes of vanilla oak. The wine is direct and fresh on the attack, supported by fine tannins. On the palate, it develops lovely depth and roundness, while on the finish the wine is backed by subtle, well-integrated oak character.
