The Duc des Nauves is a more straightforward wine than the Grand Vin from Le Puy but it still delivers on every level. Fresh black fruits and plums with soft tannins and balanced acidity.
Steeped in history, Le Puy was first built in the early 17th century. Despite the march of time, production here harks back to an older era. Unlike most Bordeaux wines, which are blended from several grapes, this estate crushes grape varieties together allowing the indigenous yeasts from different parcels and grapes to combine. This provides an extra layer of complexity during their natural fermentation process. These wines are capable of maturing for decades.
