Winemaker Notes

The specific terroir gives Château L'Eden a particularly spicy aroma that continues on the palate with spicy freshness and lifted red and dark fruits says Fabian. The gentle extraction of pigéage results in a fresher style of Médoc that allows for early drinking. Nonetheless, Fabian believes, Château l'Eden benefits from being decanted and will improve in bottle for five to ten years.

Merlot, with its medium tannins and juicy acidity, pairs well with a broad range of cuisine. Full-bodied Merlot are well-suited to braised, roasted, and grilled meats thanks to their palate cleansing structure and complex flavor.

Blend: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast
This well-structured wine from a 19-acre vineyardhas rich tannins and bold black fruits that shine through the structure. It has the framework and density to be ageworthy and should be ready from 2022.

Chateau l'Eden, France
Château l'Eden is a family-owned estate in Saint-Christoly-Médoc, a small village located on the Gironde Estuary just 15km north of Saint-Estèphe. The winery was founded in 2016 by Amélie and Fabien Faget, a winemaking couple who dreamed of owning their own little “Eden” in Bordeaux. Fabien Faget is the full-time technical director of Château Meyney in Saint-Estèphe, and is familiar with the windy ocean climate of the northern Médoc. Their eight hectares of vines lie in sandy clay and gravel soils which provide an ideal terroir for Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The label depicts the tail of a peacock.

One of the most—if not the most—famous red wine regions of the world, the Medoc reaches from the city of Bordeaux northwest along the left bank of the Gironde River almost all the way to the Atlantic. Its vineyards climb along a band of flatlands, sandwiched between the coastal river marshes and the pine forests in the west. The entire region can only claim to be three to eight miles wide (at its widest), but it is about 50 miles long.

While the Medoc encompasses the Haut Medoc, and thus most of the classed-growth villages (Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe) it is really only those wines produced in the Bas-Medoc that use the Medoc appellation name. The ones farther down the river, and on marginally higher ground, are eligible to claim the Haut Medoc appellation, or their village or cru status.

While the region can’t boast a particularly dramatic landscape, impressive chateaux disperse themselves among the magically well-drained gravel soils that define the area. This optimal soil draining capacity is completely necessary and ideal in the Medoc's damp, maritime climate. These gravels also serve well to store heat in cooler years.

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.
