The Grape Varieties

The choice of grape variety is not dictated by fashion, but rather by what gives the best results on each terroir.
Of course, a terroir alone produces nothing. It requires the right combination and type of grape varieties that can bring out the whole wealth of potential within it.

The grape varieties of the 59 hectares of red depend on the different plots of the vineyard and how they are exposed. They are as follows:

• 50% Merlot
• 40% Cabernet Sauvignon (on the most exposed plots)
• 9% Cabernet Franc
• 1% Malbec

Description

Chateau de Parenchere 2012 Bordeaux comes from estate grown grapes on the far Eastern border of Bordeaux.

This is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Aroma has notes of raspberries of front, accented with vanilla, cocoa, and a hint of leather.

Flavor is reminiscent of blueberries and black cherry with some earthy, leathery flavors and hints of some floral notes. This wine has well structured tannins with a silky mouthfeel and finishes semi dry. This wine is lush and complex and really over delivers for a moderately priced Bordeaux.

Pairing:  It is delicious on its own, but would pair nicely with roasted lamb, duck, or even prime rib. If you are a French wine lover that doesn’t want to break the bank, this one is for you.
