Chateau Raudier's vineyards are in a prime location in St Emilion: on the plateau adjacent to the border with Pomerol. In one area, the next row of vines belong to Chateau La Fleur and the renowned Chateau Petrus vineyard is just 100m away!
The vines are 35 years old, planted in clay/ limestone and clay / silica soils. Fermentation is at low temperatures with regular pumping over.
Cherry red in colour. Fruity aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant overlaid with liquorice. Beautiful, velvety texture in the mouth, with soft tannins. Long finish
