Château Haut-Colombier 2015, Premières Côtes De Blaye


Chateau Haut-Colombier is a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe and juicy, this is a ready-to-drink wine. It has berry fruits cut with acidity and with a firm line in spicy wood from barrels that are one- to three-years-old. The tannins give a solid foundation and the potential for a period of ageing after bottling.

Emmanuel Chéty is the winemaker at Haut-Colombier and is in charge of the vineyards. As is fairly typical in the Côtes De Blaye, these are planted with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, with an average age of around 30 years. After fermentation the wine is left to macerate on the skins for 20 to 30 days before being transferred into oak barrels to finish its ageing. Delicious when young, Château Haut-Colombier is also capable of ageing for up to decade from the vintage.
