M. André Lurton, l'une des personalité les plus connues à Bordeaux, est viticulteur depuis plus de 70 ans. L'ensemble de ses propriétés bordelaises s'étend sur 600 hectares de vignes, compte 200 salariés, 5000 clients et près de 50 millions d'euros de chiffre d'affaires. La production est vendue sur le territoire français dans une proportion de 50%, l'exportation accaparant le reste.

Le Château de Barbe Blanche appartient aux Vignobles André Lurton en copropriété avec M. André Magnon. Ce domaine comprend 28 hectares de vignes plantés en rouge et dont l'âge moyen oscille autour de 35 ans. Ce vin a été élevé pendant 12 mois en barriques de chêne, dont 50% de neuves.

Notes de dégustation:

Encore assez jeune, ce vin à la robe rouge rubis très foncé possède un aspect olfactif plutôt complexe. L'aération permet d'y déceler des notes fruitées (framboise, mûre et cassis), épicées (bois, réglisse) et empyreumatiques (chocolat, vanille). Grâce à sa fraîcheur, sa souplesse et son équilibre, ce vin passablement corsé pour le moment se révèle agréable. Il commande impérativement de la nourriture, telle des viandes rouges (boeuf et gibiers). Sera parfait d'ici 6 ans et durera un autre 6 ans par la suite.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
