For Dourthe Nº1 red, the remarkable task of seeking out the finest terroirs is also undertaken in the extensive red Bordeaux vineyard to pinpoint exactly those areas where Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon have the best chance of reaching full maturity. Forging strong partnerships with growers guarantees optimal and consistent fruit quality. From tending the vine all the way through to the harvest, the growers work in close collaboration with the Dourthe winemakers. The finest batches of Dourthe Nº1 mature 12 months in new French oak barriques where the tannins from oak integrate harmoniously with those present in the wine, adding roundness, balance and aromatic complexity.
35% Cabernet Sauvignon
