Château La Garricq 2014
* Required fields
Thanks to the mild weather conditions of spring 2014, the flowering was fast and homogenous raising winegrowers’ optimism. Alternating between sunny days and cool nights, the month of July contributes to the berries’ healthy development.
Starting in August, the hopes for a nice vintage unfortunately give way to anxiety. Only a miracle can save the vintage ... the months of September and October exceeded our expectations!
Typical of an Indian summer, sunshine and warm temperatures enabled us to harvest with calm and confidence and to pick beautiful grapes.

The 2014 vintage, generous, gave birth to powerful and elegant wines with a beautiful aromatic complexity and a nice freshness.
James Suckling 92 points Ripe and beautiful berry character with currant and spice undertones. Full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now or hold.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points This is a small property under the same ownership as Château Paloumey. It is unusual in the 20% Petit Verdot that goes into the blend. That gives the wine its deep color and rich generous black-plum fruit. Solid and dense, the wine will age well. Drink from 2020.
