Chateau Puy Guilhem Fronsac 2009

A mature and traditionally styled Bordeaux showing ripe
and fleshy black berried fruits with a lovely savoury and
earthy finish.
Producer Note
The stunning 18th century Château Puy Guilhem is located on the hills of Saillans,
overlooking the appellations of Pomerol and Saint-Émilion. The vineyard covers 14.5
hectares and is situated at the highest elevation of the Fronsac appellation, where the
quality soils produce rich, concentrated grapes. The vineyard is manually cultivated
following a sustainable philosophy and renowned consultant oenologist Stéphane
Derenoncourt vinifies by parcel, creating hand-crafted, fruit focused and beautifully
balanced wines.
Vintage
2009 is widely cited as an outstanding vintage. The growing season was almost perfect,
with a long, fine, warm summer and crucially, cooler nights which helped to retain
balancing acidity. The wines are intensely ripe and rich.
Vineyard
The appellation of Fronsac is on the right bank close to Saint Emilion. The wines are
dominated by Merlot. Château Puyguilhem’s vineyard is situated in an elevated
position of the appellation, atop high quality soil composed of a mix of clay and silt,
which imparts structure to the wine. The vineyard is managed sustainably without the
use of herbicides. Cover crops of grass are grown between the vines and managed
with light tilling.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in temperature controlled vats and lasted for 24 to 48 hours.
The fermenting must was manually pumped over, with daily observations to check the
evolution of the skins. Maceration lasted between three to four weeks to extract the
desired levels of colour, flavour and tannins. The wine was aged for 12 to 16 months in
French oak barrels, of which 50% were new and 50% was of one year.
Tasting Note
A powerful yet elegant red with ripe berried fruits enhanced by a subtle note of oak
spice. Full bodied, with juicy fruit and an attractive savoury note on the finish.
