Château Rieussec’s second wine is selected according to the same standards as the first wine. Its character consistently reveals a beautiful aromatic range dominated by citrus flavours. Carmes de Rieussec’s name is a reference to the Carmelite monks in Langon, who owned the Rieussec estate, located on the border of the municipalities of Fargues and Sauternes, in the 18th century.

Casas del Bosque Private Reserve La Trampa

Juan Cúneo Solari founded Casas del Bosque in 1993, at a time when the Chilean wine industry was pursuing quantity over quality. His commitment to quality is evident in the Gran Reserva Cabernet, a wine which is a great exponent of this characteristic variety of Chile that finds one of its most typical expressions in the Maipo Valley.

The Private Reserve are a limited edition wines with great body and balanced structure, with soft and elegant tannins. A unique terroir. Old vines. Grapes hand harvested at optimum ripeness. Only French oak barrels selected by the winemaker.

“La Trampa” is the culmination of a constant search for excellence in interpreting the terroir, achieving a great cool climate wine.
A north-east facing hillside of sandy loam soils on its surface, gives way to deeper clay-like soil typical of Serie Lo Vásquez, of granitic origin and rich in iron. These controlled yield vineyards produce remarkable quality grapes of Syrah, Malbec and Pinot Noir, of rich and balanced acidity and firm tannins, which give birth to this unique and atypical assemblage, where the fruit is the main protagonist.

Château Cantelaudette Cuvée Prestige Rouge Graves de Vayres AOC

“I inherited Château Cantelaudette in 1984, I was thirty years old and married in the same year. The property was not really a wedding gift: the house and vines had been abandoned and there was no winery. However, my wife, when she saw the old château, thought that it should be our home. Starting from scratch, we refurbished it to our taste, replanted the vines according to expert recommendations, and built an operational winery to produce a wine under the Cantelaudette label. Without my wife, Laurence, I never would have had the courage to undertake this adventure. I make wines for her and which reflect her… refined, elegant, balanced, rounded, and with a certain complexity.” – Jean-Michel Chatelier, owner and manager of Château Cantelaudette.

Château Grand-Puy Ducasse Pauillac Grand Cru Classé AOC

Three large plots in the best parts of Pauillac form the vineyard of this classified growth, an unusual configuration and a direct inheritance from the estate’s founder, Pierre Ducasse, an eminent lawyer. In the 18th century he gave a single name to a fine vineyard holding, which was put together through inheritance and purchases. When he died in 1797, his son, Pierre, inherited a 60-hectare exploitation, named Ducasse-Grand-Puy-Artigues-Arnaud, of which two third were planted with vines. The estate was classified in 1855, under the name of Artigues Arnaud.
Thanks to impeccable harvesting and tailor-made winemaking, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot produced a wine renowned for its aromatic complexity, glorious structure and ageing capacity, all true to the classic Pauillac style.
