Château Jean Faux - Sainte Radegonde - Red

Château Jean Faux - Sainte Radegonde - Red


"Sainte Radegonde" red , is the great wine of the Château. It is made up of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc . The grapes selected come from the best plots and the aging is particularly careful by Pascal Collotte : more than 1 year in oak barrels (50% of which are new), then 1 year in concrete vats .


The harvest is manual to ensure a perfect selection. The grapes are harvested at the right maturity depending on the exposure.


The nose is expressive and displays a beautiful complexity. On the palate, the wine is round, with beautiful tannins and very concentrated fruit. It reveals notes of raspberries, blackberry jam, but also floral notes of violets or even spices such as vanilla and liquorice . A delicious nectar.

Do not hesitate to aerate it several hours before tasting in order to soften the tannins .
