The Médoc appellation comprises a wide variety of soil types, including sand, gravel, clay, stones and pebbles. The wines of the Médoc are all produced by blending different grape varieties and from this marriage come the richness of the wines, the excellence of the vintages and the exceptional qualities which have made the region's reputation.

The vineyards of Château Courbian are found in the village of Bégadan, on the Médoc peninsula. It is known for its fine abbey which dates from the 11th century. Today the estate belongs to Mr Claude Greteau.

60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet sauvignon

winemaking and ageing

Destemming and crushing of the grapes. Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature with selected yeasts and maceration of the skins. This step takes about 3 to 4 weeks to provide a wine for ageing, rich in tannins. Malolactic fermentation then ageing in barrels for a minimum of 6 months.

food pairings

Serve at between 16 and 18°C with meat and cheeses.

tasting

Good intensity of colour. Nose of ripe fruit, pleasantly oaked with notes of vanilla, lightly grilled. The palate is full, with good volume. A great classic of the Médoc.
