Silky and elegant Bordeaux from Entre-deux-Mers, drinking nicely now
Château Naujan Lapeyrere is situated in Saint-Vincent de Pertignas in the Region of Entre-deux-Mers, near Saint-Emilion. The vineyards are located on an excellent clay- limestone - gravel soil which gives a fine, delicate, elegant wine, with a lovely aromatic complexity.
The complexity is further enhanced by an period of ageing in oak barrels after the fermentation which is in temperature controlled stainless steel vats.
Aged in French oak for 12 months, only 10% of which is new, enhances the
fruit and adds finely knit layers to the wine.
Tasting Note: This is very elegant, bright with sweet red and dark fruits and a touch of caramel and vanilla, and a silky smooth mouthfeel.
Merlot 85%, Cabernet Sauvignon 15%
