Vignobles Sullivan – Saint-Emilion
Château Du Parc is an estate located in the Saint-Émilion appellation in Bordeaux, France, one of the oldest and most prestigious wine producing regions in all of Bordeaux. This world-renowned area is known for the region’s finest wines due to its diverse terroir.
“At Château Du Parc, we strive for excellences by hand picking only the finest grapes that produce the highest quality wine to ensure our wine reflect the true essence of the appellation. To the south, the vineyards are mostly gravel and sand based while the north consists of clay and limestone soils. The vineyard’s terroir creates a natural drainage system; this, coupled with the perfect exposure to the sun, produces perfect ripening conditions for our grape varieties.”
Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2015 (75 cl)
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc – 14.5% by VOL
This wine has a rounded and quite opulent bouquet with a boysenberry jam and raspberry nose. Quite modern in style, the palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and good acidity. The wine has a rich red color, with sheen and great intensity. Very ripe, red fruit notes on the nose contrast spicy notes for beautiful complexity. On the palate, it has a great onset: frank, direct and sustained by beautiful red fruits that linger in the mouth throughout the tasting. Spicy and light wooden notes are present throughout.
