SCEA CHATEAU DAVIDThe house of the Castle dates from the eighteenth century, it belonged for 5 generations to the same family of winemakers, before being taken over in 2015 by 2 wine enthusiasts: Isabelle and Thierry Kerdreux.
The vineyard of 16 ha is composed of 48% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 4% Cabernet franc, 3% petit verdot and 3% Cot, sandy-gravelly soil majority, clay silks and limestone outcrops according to the sectors, in a soft and gently undulating landscape, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde estuary.
Vinification according to traditional Medocan methods, and aging from 12 to 18 months in oak barrels. HVE level 3 from the 2018 vintage but already worked in the same way since the takeover of the domain in 2016.
You will appreciate its Médoc Les Hauts de David 2016, Silver Medal Lyon 2018, with complex connotations of cherry, prune and undergrowth, with ripe tannins, velvety and ample mouth, to which you must leave time to express yourself at best. His Médoc David 2015, of intense cherry colour with purple reflections, distinguished and persistent nose of black fruits and spices, well enveloped tannins, is a powerful wine, of beautiful material. The 2014 is ruby-red, with aromas of ripe fruit and black pepper, fleshy, complex, with intense flavors, generous mouth.
Excellent 2012, with aromas of ripe fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) and liquorice, a full-bodied wine, fleshy in the mouth, with nuances of cooked fruits with stone and cinnamon, ample and frank, typed, of deep color, perfect with, for example, lamb mouse navarin or veal tendrons with mushrooms and tomato.
Also taste the Château Les Abèdes 2015, very classic, with a subtle and powerful nose, with its delicate notes of ripe red fruits and smoked, combines structure and elegance, a seductive and distinguished wine.
Nice novelty with this cuvée Fleur de David 2016, very fragrant on the nose (morello cherry, smoked), it is dense, all in distinction, with notes of blackcurrant and undergrowth on the palate.
