Dourthe Grand Terroirs Rouge
The Bordeaux wine-growing region is remarkable for the exceptional quality and great variety of its terroirs, as illustrated by the different appellations. The Dourthe Grands Terroirs range includes the most representative appellations and offers winelovers the opportunity to discover the different facets of Bordeaux through these authentic wines, each with their own special character. The Grands Terroirs are the result of a particularly strict selection procedure carried out by the Dourthe oenologists. From among hundreds of batches, only the most interesting wines are selected, those with a well-balanced structure and a personality typical of their appellation. The blend then creates a wine of character with its complex fruity notes and its supple tannins.
Founded in 1840, Dourthe has become a reference producer in Bordeaux. Nine properties at the top of their appellations make up the Dourthe Vineyards, and the unfailing success of Dourthe's creations rewards its audacity and quality demand.
Brilliant garnet-red colour and the attractive bouquet reveals delicate red berry notes. It is an elegant wine with a very well-balanced structure, rounded and fruit-driven on the attack, and silky tannins. [www.dourthe.com]
