The “Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux” region produces red wines of good intensity. The styles we make respect this and consequently the wines have structure to match. Our production methods are aimed at the extraction of the fruit flavors and the soft tannins. We want some structure but prefer the wines to be not too tannic or over-extracted.
CHÂTEAU CARSIN ROUGE
CUVÉE PRIVÉE ROUGE
Cuvée Privée Red is produced only in the best and the ripest years. Quantities produced are relatively small: perhaps 2000 – 3000 bottles per annum. This wine is always based on Malbec which gives the wine structure as well as a full fruity mouth-feel. Some people say that the wine has some warm “New World” characters which are enhanced with relatively strong new oak ageing. Latest Cuvée Privées were produced in 2003 and 2007.
