With a typical "Côtes de Bourg" bouquet, Château Landreau combines fruitiness, finesse, roundness and tannic structure. The typicality of Merlot gives it hints of slightly chocolatey black cherries. Over the years, it will become one of the great wines of Côtes de Bourg, a flagship of Bordeaux wines.
Charismatic wine, it goes perfectly with game, red meats and goes well with cheeses of character. It also accompanies any type of spicy cuisine.
Blend: 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
The terroir is composed of deep clays mixed with the serious red typical of the Côtes de Bourg. Exposed south-west, with a rugged relief, it presents all the guarantees for a vineyard of exceptional quality. From its dominant position, you can see the edges of the Estuary as well as Bordeaux and its left bank.
The grape variety, predominantly Merlot, is in perfect harmony with the terroir. Sensitive to respect for the environment, we operate Château Landreau by applying the common sense of sustainable culture.
One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
