Pessac-Leognan

Château Baret 2013

S$1900 Flacon of 10cl

A very favorable solar year gave this Pessac-Leognan the lovely golden color that characterizes the 2013 vintage. The nose is clean and rich with barely noticeable oak and is already showing the more complex aromas associated with ageing. The soft, silky palate is perfectly balanced by good acidity. Seabass or an assortment of hard, flavorful cheeses will pair wonderfully with this wine.

Winemaker

André Ballande

Château Baret was formerly the estate of the Baret family, a family of nobility, but has belonged to the Ballande family for the last 200 years. The Château lies on the edge of Bordeaux in Villenave d’Ornon and is entirely surrounded by a vineyard, like most of the Pessac-Léognan Grand Cru chateaus. During the last 20 years, the vineyard has undergone a complete overhaul to ensure the production of excellent quality dry white wines.
