    Description

    An elegant and fruity Pomerol red wine

    The estate

    Emanating from the merger between Chateaux La Commanderie de Mazeyres, Prieurs de la Commanderie and Vieux Bourgneuf, Chateau Fayat benefits from exceptionally diverse terroirs that are all situated within the Pomerol appellation.

    The vineyard

    Chateau Fayat watches over a vineyard of 13.36 hectares, comprising vines that are 50 years old on average.

    The signature style of this Pomerol wine authentically expresses the characteristics of the terroirs of these three former estates. While the terroir of Chateau La Commanderie de Mazeyres is composed of gravel and sand, that of Vieux Bourgneuf rests on sand and clay soil and the terroir of Chateau Prieurs de la Commanderie is mainly composed of gravel, sand and clay.

    Winemaking and aging

    Harvested by hand once they had reached optimum levels of ripeness, the grapes are sorted in the vineyard and then on a sorting table. Vinification by plot, partly in wooden tanks and partly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Maceration between 25 and 30 days. Malolactic fermentation is carried out partly in new barrels, as is the 15 to 18-month aging period.

    The blend

    This Chateau Fayat 2009 is a blend of Merlot (90%) and Cabernet Franc (10%).

    The tasting

    Color

    The color is a dark red.

    Nose

    Expressive, the nose blends delicious fruity and woody fragrances with peppery notes.

    Palate

    Smooth, this wine seduces the palate due to its subtly toasted tannins. Throughout the tasting experience, fruity (plums, blackberries) and woody (oak) aromas are combined with subtle notes of spices and tobacco.
