Graves Rouge, Château de Respide L’Inattendu

26/08/2017

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot
L`Inattendue or “the Unexpected” is certainly the right name for this wine, as it is full of exciting surprises that make it stand-out from the main stream – notably:
  —  Made by famous Bordeaux winemaker Franck Bonnet of Château de Respide
— Specially selected old vines with hand picking of grapes at harvest time
— Blend of 40% Merlot,40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Petit Verdot
— Vinification in 600 ltr old French oak barrels
— No added sulphur throughout
— Aged for 10 months in new and old French oak barrels
— Total production of only 3,000 bottles per year
All in all a very rare, hand crafted wine from Bordeaux – with no added sulphur a so-called “natural wine” that also drinks rather well.
A wine of structure and power, silky smooth tannins and a big punch of red fruits. Long and succulent and perfect with charcuterie, red meats or indeed any meal of substance.
  2015 is the first ever vintage of L`Inattendue so go on a ride with us and be part of history. Venture into new pastures and drink ”the Unexpected”.
Drink now — to 2025 possibly (nobody knows!).
