Château le Calvaire
Bordeaux Supérieur - 2019
Here lie the Quancard family roots. Many of the chateau’s vines share the same destiny as Terrefort.
They overlook the Dordogne, a river flowing with hopes and expectations, many of which are reflected here in this beautiful wine, born from a passion for the terroir and its history. Straddling the 45th parallel, the vines of the château benefit from a microclimate that is ideal for winegrowing: moderately warm, humid, masses of sunshine and mild winters.

Beautiful deep colour with glints of ruby, and a subtle, delicate nose with notes of tart red fruit and raspberries. The palate is fruity and smooth, revealing notes of red fruit and redcurrants, accompanied by supple tannins, A beautiful wine.
Excellent with beef, or chicken cooked in a sauce, or grilled. Also goes well with soft cheeses such as camembert, brie or munster
