New Grand Vin launch for Château Fleur Haut Gaussens
Château Fleur Haut Gaussens has two new wines to show at Vinexpo Bordeaux including its first real high-end wine, Grand Vin, and La Bergeronnette, a new 100% Cabernet Franc.
Hervé Lhuillier, owner of this award- winning property, said it had been one of his ambitions to create a “very high-end wine like a local couturier” which he says is the culmination of 30 years experience making wine in the property.
The Grand Vin includes grapes taken from the best parcels on the property and is a blend of equal proportions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. They help create an “elegant, fine, pure, fresh” wine with “aromas of violet with a hint of pepper and blackcurrant jam”.
La Bergeronnette is its new 100% Cabernet Franc, named after the small grey bird often seen sitting on stakes in this Bordeaux producer’s vineyard. The wine is made from grapes picked from a specific plot and parcel of vines that have been chosen both for the quality of its terroir and what Lhuillier says is its “exceptional exposure”.
Grapes are hand picked for optimum ripeness and help make the well balanced wine with the “remarkable freshness” that Lhuillier is looking for.
