L'Orangerie de Rahoul

Second Vin du Château Rahoul - AOC Graves

L'Orangerie de Rahoul-SM

There is a magnificent orangery in the interior courtyard of Château Rahoul, not unlike the finest painting studios of old. Bearing witness to a rich past, this stunning winter garden could not have remained forgotten for long, and in 2008 was the inspiration for the creation of Château Rahoul’s second wine, L’Orangerie de Rahoul. The perfect introduction to the fine wine of Château Rahoul, L’Orangerie de Rahoul would never have existed without such a wealth of complex terroirs to make this a Graves wine that stands out from the rest.

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.
