Winemakers Note

“ONCE CONSUMED BY THE TASTE AND PASSION FOR WINE, THE DESIRE TO ALWAYS DO ‘BETTER’ AND ULTIMATELY ACHIEVE THE ‘IDEAL’ BECOMES AN OBSESSION. HERE AT DOURTHE, WE OFTEN DREAMED OF THIS IDEAL WINE, MADE FROM THE BEST GRAPES FROM THE FINEST TERROIRS IN BORDEAUX: THE ART OF BLENDING IN ITS MOST ULTIMATE FORM.” Patrick JESTIN - CEO OF DOURTHE Tasting notes Very attractive and intensely deep in appearance, tinged with bright, ruby-red highlights. Intense aromas of ripe, fresh fruit develop on the nose, accompanied by notes of spice and sandalwood.Super silky from the outset, the wine rapidly gains in body, and is appealingly generous and concentrated on the palate. Delicious and refreshing mouthfeel, where flavours of blackcurrant, black cherries and hints of sweet spice intermingle and coat the remarkably delicate, tannic structure. Overall, this perfectly balanced wine gradually unfurls in a noticeably lengthy finish, revealing surprisingly persistent aromas. 2014 Vintage conditions After a promising start to the year, a dull, gloomy summer meant ripening got off to a slow start.

While the quality of the vintage owes a great deal to the excellent late-season, a vintage of this quality would not be possible without considerable work in the vineyards earlier in the season to ensure pristine quality in the vines and stunning fruit. For Essence de DOURTHE, each vine is considered as a specific entity, benefiting from tailored management techniques, receiving no less than fitty different actions before the harvest, to produce the finest quality grapes possible. Rapidly after harvesting, there were absolutely no doubt that our cellars produced once again one of these rare gems, that ageing and time would reveal… Blend CS : 68% Merlot : 28% Petit Verdot : 4%
