This small estate is the property of the Bourlon family, whose last heiress, Brigitte, took over in 2009 with her husband Eric. They are two kind-hearted people and one can feel it in their wines. According to her, the organic experience is difficult in Bordeaux due to high proportion of climactic incidents. But she doesn’t regret at all when she notices the quality improvement on the wines and the better expression of fruit she has gained. Their soils are likely to give full-bodied wines. But, as organic brings finesse and elegance, the result in the glass is very harmonious.
Chateau Guibeau Puisseguin Saint-Emilion “l ‘Emotion” 2015
Amazing value claret with real personality. The nose reveals red fruit with a hint of vanilla. The palate has great structure and concentration with a long aromatic finish. A wine full of character with all the charm of its terroir. The estate’s organic methods have helped add another dimension of vavavoom to the wines!
Merlot 75% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Cabernet Franc 10% fermented and age in tank. Vines aged around 30 years.
Puisseguin St. Emilion, is the eastern-most commune in the St. Emilion satellite appellations. The appellation takes parts of its name from Puy, which is an old Celtic term that means “The hill of the powerful wine.” The second part of its name comes from Seguin, who was an officer that served under the Emperor Charlemagne.
