Here is a great find and tremendous value in Bordeaux. It is a small chateau located on the right bank of the Gironde River in Arveyres. Operated by Isabelle Valbom-Nadal in the Graves de Vayres area, the vines here are carefully tended, debudded to control vigor, with leaf removal and cluster thinning to enhance the flavors. This wine is made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It is ripe and rich with soft tannins and exuberant fruit. This chateau makes about 8,000 cases of wine per vintage.
