Château Massereau, situated in Barsac approximately 30km from Bordeaux, was built in the 16th century. The estate was acquired by the Chaigneau family in 2000 and brothers Jean-François and Philippe quickly set about to farming organically. They remain fully committed to natural winemaking; ploughing with horses, pressing using an old wooden press, fermenting with native yeast, and limiting SO2 (sometimes to none at all) at bottling. This cuvée, the top wine from Massereau, comes from grapes planted in the alluvial soils of Graves, on the left bank of the Garonne, south of Bordeaux, and a bit east of Pessac-Léognan. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot, it displays a compelling fruit character with streaks of herbs, violet, tobacco and cedar. Elegant in structure, it offers up firm acidity and refined tannins. It is fermented in concrete vats and then aged for 16 months in neutral barriques before a 10-year elevage in the bottle before release. An old school classic from a family-run estate. Organically grown, low-intervention, vegan.
