Chateau Fayau Bordeaux Rouge 2017

A fresh and medium bodied style of Bordeaux showing
plenty of soft red fruit flavours.


Producer Note
Château Fayau is a beautiful chartreuse style building surrounded by vines in the
heart of the historic village of Cadillac. The 85 acre estate has been in the Medeville
family since 1826 who carry on the proud tradition of making sweet botrytised wines
and a traditional red Bordeaux blend. The vineyards are planted with Semillon,
Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc
vines.


Vintage
Major frost occurred in April 2017 in Bordeaux, resulting in the lowest yield in over 25
years across the region. The fruit that remained achieved good ripeness levels, but in
limited quantities.


Vineyard
The south facing vineyards are situated on the slopes of Cadillac. The vines are
cultivated according to “la lutte rainsonnée”, using sustainable agricultural methods
and reducing the amount of chemicals, in order to respect the land and its
environment. Trained to the Simple Guyot method, the vines have an average age
of 25 years and are grown in clay and silica soils. The grapes are hand harvested.


Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless
steel tanks and lasted between 15 and 18 days. The wine was racked, blended and
matured in underground tanks, preserving the pure fruit characters while capturing
the nuances of the terroir.


Tasting Note
Delicate aromas of crunchy blackcurrant lead to a rounded palate, with supple
tannins and pleasant aromatic freshness. Fantastically modern and versatile
Bordeaux.
