Chateau du Couvent Pomerol
Château du Couvent is the second wine of the famous Clos René, owned by the Lasserre family, who farm their vineyards without herbicides, insecticides or other chemical treatments. The blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec is vinified separately, before finally maturing the wine for 16 months in oak barrels.
This classic, savoury Pomerol makes a wonderful partner for beef dishes, such as a classic Wellington, or pair it with festive turkey or roast duck. There are delicious aromas of fruit: blackcurrant, cherry, cedar, then blackberry and spices form a complex and expressive bouquet. The palate is powerful, with strong tannins, supple fruit and very good potential for ageing.
