About Chateau Pardaillan 2016 Blaye - Cotes de Bordeaux

Built in the early 17th century, Chateau Pardaillan belonged to Louis d’Aulede de Pardaillan. Partly demolished during the French Revolution,it became the property of the Dupeyrat family, who gradually rebuilt it. The present-day chateau dates from 1802. It's an impressive building protected by two towers, and surrounded by a terrace facing the village of Cars.

This estate is situated on one of the most beautiful hillsides of Blaye. Its clay-limestone soil is particularity rich in clay. Merlot thrives here, and expresses itself beautifully in a strong, elegant wine. Since 1975, vines at Chateau Pardaillan have been tended with a very
environmentally-friendly approach according to the principles of sustainable viticulture. The steep slope makes this vineyard particularly challenging to cultivate.

The 37 acres of vines are planted 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec averaging 30 years of age. Grapes are harvested by hand, and a traditional fermentation is carried out with 3 to 4 weeks maceration. The wine is aged 12 to 14 months in oak barrels before bottling.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 91 points saying "Ripe and balanced, this rich, structured, mostly Merlot wine offers fine tannins and layers of berry fruits. Concentrated and dense, the wine will develop well, with plenty of fruitiness as well as a firm structure. Drink this Vignobles Bayle Carreau wine from 2022." On Sale!!
