SCEA CHATEAU DAVID

SCEA CHATEAU DAVIDA domain on ground of rocky sands. The vineyard of 13 ha consists of 50 % Cabernet-Sauvignon, 40 % Merlot, 5 % frank Cabernet and Small 5 % Verdot. Wine making according to the traditional médocaines methods, and ageing from 12 to 18 months in oak barrels.
The new owner, Thierry Kerdreux, in a real will to work in a more reasoned culture while keeping all the team of the domain which has a big experience and a knowledge of these wines.
You will enjoy his Médoc Les Hauts de David 2016, Lyon Silver Medal 2018, with complex connotations of cherry, plum and undergrowth, with ripe tannins, velvety mouth and ample, that must be given time to express themselves to the best of their ability. Its 2015, intense cherry color with purple reflections, distinguished and persistent nose of black fruits and spices, with well-wrapped tannins, it is a powerful wine, of beautiful material. The 2014 is ruby color, with aromas of ripe fruit and black pepper, fleshy, complex, with intense flavors, generous mouth.
Excellent 2012, with aromas of ripe fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry) and liquorice, a full-bodied wine, fleshy on the palate, with nuances of stone-baked fruit and cinnamon, ample and frank, typed, deep-coloured, perfect with, for example, a lamb mouse navarin or veal tendrons with mushrooms and tomatoes.
Also taste the Château Les Abèdes 2015, very classic, with a subtle and powerful nose, with its delicate notes of ripe red fruits and smoky, combines structure and elegance, a seductive and distinguished wine.
