The “Salon de l’Agriculture” ended on a happy note for us as -once again- the work of our team has been rewarded! Our Chateau Haut Bessac – Graves de Vayres Rouge 2016 received a Silver Medal from the “Concours Général Agricole de Paris”.
Here is the jury’s tasting note “Roasted, enjoyable. Frank woody notes, quite generous, beautiful structure, beautiful lenght and final”
Château Haut Bessac is our “ready to drink” wines, friendly and approachable. The range offers great purity of fruit and a smooth texture.
The Sauvignon Blanc, which represent the majority of Haut Bessac white’s blend, is harvested very early in the morning, it gives a great freshness to the wine. Notes of exotic and citrus fruits are very expressive and allows the wine to be drunk alone or with lighter cuisine.
As for the red, the dominance of Merlot allows an easy, young and regular consumption. The wine is delighting and round without being too complex. The mouth is full of fruit and very expressive. As a consequence it is easy to open for every occasion.
