Chateau Rousseau de Sipian, Cru Bourgeois, 2008
This wine has a nose of bramble fruit, cedar and a touch of tobacco. A deep red appearance, firm rich dry tannin and good length on the palate. Soft and rounded. A lovely elegant claret.
The Grand Vin of Château Rousseau de Sipian is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot coming from the parcels with the best exposure. The grapes are picked by hand when they reach optimal maturity then vinified in accordance with the quality potential of each vintage. Afterwards the blended wines are aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months. Finally, at the end of this period a meticulous selection of the different lots is made and the wine now finished is bottled.
Production: 60.000 bouteilles
