90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
One of two Bordeaux we had planned for the July / August / September at Gauthier Soho, this excellent bottle represents superb value for its quality.
Four generations of the Lamarque family have produced this stunning red wine since 1923.
Situated in the commune of Montagne, between prestigious neighbours Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, Chateau Puynormond overlooks an amphitheatre of vines from a clay terrior.
From the vineyard: "Deep ruby color with purple hues due to its youth, this vintage offers a limpid and clear shine.
This wine gives intense and elegant aromas of red fruits such as gooseberry, blackberry, cherry or plum. It offers a beautiful persistence enhanced by a note of cooked fruit.
It is a gourmet and generous wine offering to the palate the same aromas as nose, with the presence of soft tannins, elegant and fine, which allow a nice length in the mouth."
