Winery: Chateau Lavergne is located near the ruins of the Abbey of La Sauve Majeure. Founded in 1079, the Abbot Saint Gerard was passionate about winemaking, influencing the long history of grape growing in the area. I was not able to locate specifics on the winery and production, only that the bottler produces and bottles other entry level and value Bordeaux.
Winemaking: Grapes were sourced from vineyards in the A.O.C. Entre-Deux-Mers, around Rauzans and La Réole.
Tasting Notes: Garnet in colour with aromas of dark fruit and olive. Cherry, blackberry, olive and earth notes are complimented by a good food friendly acidity. Tannins are on the softer side, finishing with sour cherry and hints of cedar. A good combination of tart fruit and earth elements, there is an admirable amount of character in each sip for an $8 wine.
65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon
Bottled for C.V.A. by C.S.A. A33750 Gironde
