Le Bruilleau has been a family property for four generations, managed by husband and wife team Nadine and Serge Bedicheau, whose vineyard occupies more than ten hectares of vines including 2 hectares of white.
At Château Le Bruilleau , the harvest is manual and all the vines benefit from the best care.
This wine from the excellent 2016 vintage had aromatic dark red fruit aromas with a hint of meatiness. On the palate it is dry with balanced acidity and well structured tannins. Excellent weight of ripe dark red fruits and a hint of cedar wood. The wine has layers of complex ripe fruit flavours with some vanilla tones. A delicious well balanced wine, with great length and a long finish. While this wine is drinking well it is capable of ageing for many years to come. 91 points Decanter Magazine
