Chateau Plaisance Bordeaux 2015

A fruity and appealing claret, with fresh red berried fruits
complemented by a hint of liquorice and dark chocolate
through to a slightly earthy finish.
Producer Note
Château Plaisance is a property with 23 hectares of vineyard in the appellations of
Bordeaux and Côtes de Bordeaux. The vineyard sits on a plateau surrounding the
château with good sun exposure. Winemaker Ludovic Labarrere creates Merlot based
wines which are wonderfully fleshy and fruit forward.
Vintage
2015 has been hailed as an excellent vintage in Bordeaux. Generous flowering took
place followed by a hot, dry early summer. August was slightly cooler and damper,
followed by good weather in September enabling the grapes to reach full maturity. The
wines have power and precision, particularly from the right bank appellations and
many outstanding wines have been made from lesser appellations.
Vineyard
The vineyard is situated on sandy-clay and sandy-gravel soils which result in smooth
and creamy wines. The vines have been trained with a high canopy to maximise the
sunlight and optimise the photosynthesis of the plants, encouraging optimum maturity
in the berries.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted. Fermentation took place in thermo-regulated
concrete and stainless steel tanks. A long, slow fermentation took place in order to
slowly extract the desired levels of colour, flavour and fine tannins. Post fermentation
maceration lasted for two to three weeks. The wine was made in an unoaked style and
was aged for 14 months in concrete tanks, preserving the purity of the fruit and the
nuances of the terroir.
Tasting Note
Fruity and appealing claret, with fresh red berried fruits complemented by a hint of

the Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure. The result is a beautifully balanced wine with a
refreshing finish.
