La Fon du Berger Haut-Medoc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Château La Fon du Berger is just 3km west of Pauillac between the estuary and the ocean, providing an ideal micro-climate for the vineyards. It’s a family estate, run by Gérard Bouges since 1983. He has planted mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, best suited to the gravel terroir, and has planted with a high density of vines to naturally lower yields. The estate respects tradition and uses sustainable agriculture principles: no pesticides, green cover, leaf removal and green harvesting. 12 to 14 months aging in French oak barrels. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Beautifully balanced, this is classic Bordeaux for a song. 12 to 14 months elevage in French oak barrels, 1/3 new.
