CHATEAU TOULOUZE

CHATEAU TOULOUZEThe grounds of the Château Toulouze depended on a vast land unit, property of the Château de Vayres. This last built in XIIIème century with the site of a Gallo-Roman “oppidum” which prevails the Dordogne, was one of the residences of the king Henri IV. Property in its current form, 27 ha of only one holding, buildings and vineyard, corresponds to what remains of a vast domain wine and maturing of more than 70 ha, built with delicate of the XVIIIème century, following the French revolution and dismantled gradually by the play of the successions. The vineyard completely restructured in 1986, starts to express the rise to power of the expression of the soil. That gives wines to the flesh fuller, generous, fruity but with impressed elegant tannins of smoothnesses. Well-balanced and harmonious wines, that one can taste young people after a broad ventilation out of carafe, but who offer according to the vintages an excellent potential of guard, on average from 10 to 15 years. Here is a beautiful Graves de Vayres Grande Cuvée 2015, (Merlot majority, 20% of Cabernets, manual and late harvest to look for maturity, aged 12 months in 1/2 muids of oak, bottled 18 months after harvest, sweet filtration), of a beautiful pronounced ruby color, with nuances of fruit and full-bodied, all in harmony. The Château Toulouze Graves de Vayres Traditionnel 2016, is always full of nuances and roundness, balanced, fragrant, with the nose of blackcurrant and spices, mixing power and suppleness.
