Description

This estate spans 40 hectares near the villages of Saint-Sulpice-et-Cameyrac, Izon and Vayres. Originally built by the Cailley family in 1812, today there are 7 hectares planted to vine. Passed down through the generations, the winery is managed by Alain Cailley and his sons Jérôme and Gil-Paul. With an average age of 40 years, the Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines are planted predominantly to clay and gravel soils. Farming without chemical weed-killers, the Cailley’s due their best to maintain the natural ecosystem of their vineyards.

The 2016 Château Le Maine Martin Bordeaux Superiore is made from a cuvée of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc. Hand harvested, the grapes were fermented in cement tanks with natural yeasts and macerated for 8-10 days. Maturation was in stainless steel tanks for 8 months. The ideal ‘luncheon’ wine, this is a classic rendition of everyday Bordeaux Rouge. Medium bodied on the palate with firm structure, it displays notes of black currants, dark raspberries, cassis, and thyme.
