Initiales Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Initiales Rouge

Our «Caractères André Lurton» is a range of wines carefully created from appellations outside our own vineyards. Benefiting from our winemaking and oenological expertise, it was born from our desire to offer our customers a complete range of Bordeaux wines.


Vintage
2015
label of 2015 Initiales red
Appellation : Haut-Médoc

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Merlot 60% / Cabernet Sauvignon 35% / 5% Petit Verdot

Weather

2015 was the third warmest year since 1900... Drought conditions, above-average monthly temperatures and sunshine (in the first half of the year), cool nights and hot weather in August accompanying véraison (colour change) were all ideal for the vines!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This Cuvée Initiales has a lovely, very intense ruby colour with attractive garnet highlights.

Nose

There is an explosion of fresh red fruit aromas when the wine is swirled in the glass.

Mouth

The wine is smooth and soft on the palate from the very first, and perfectly balanced by elegant tannin. The overall harmony is charming, and the wine is enjoyable as of now. Best enjoyed with red meats or a saddle of milk-fed lamb.
