    Product description

    Made by the Valades family who have a well-earned a reputation for being masters of Merlot. Harvesting is done by hand and yields are kept low to produce wine with concentrated fruits.

    A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, full of attractive acidity and blackberry fruits. Fine tannins which are just now beginning to soften. Ripe flavours and a supple texture on the palate, with the added element of oak ageing to give complexity. Ideal for decanting an hour before serving with red meats, especially the classic Bordeaux dish of roast lamb.

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Château Brisson

    Château Brisson is situated in Belvès de Castillon on the north bank of the Dordogne east of Saint-Emilion. Since 1980 the property has been owned by Paul Valade and comprises 18 hectares of mainly Merlot vines which average 30 years of age. Paul works with his son Cedric. The Valade family founded their wine business in Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux (formerly Côtes du Castillon) way back in 1878 with Château Brisson and Château Le Peyrat. Since then, five generations have managed the estate, the latest being Paul and Lorette Valade who have been doing so for the past thirty years. The Valades have a well-earned a reputation for being masters of Merlot. Harvesting is done by hand. Yields are kept low and are strictly managed and everything possible is done to enhance the biodiversity of the soil. Winemaking includes pre-fermentation maceration at cool temperatures, gravity flow transfer, gentle pneumatic pressing and so on. The wines are aged in French oak barrels. View our selection.
