Regional Notes
Bordeaux, one of the most famous wine regions in the world, is acclaimed for its terroir, which plays a vital role in wine production. Ideal soil structure and an oceanic climate combine to create an excellent environment for growing vines, further influenced by two rivers that subdivide the region. Soils of clay and chalk allow Château Sainte-Marie winemaker Stéphane Dupuch to craft a generous, powerful wine.

Vintage Notes
The 2008 vintage in Bordeaux, France, was a challenging one. A cold, wet May and June led to low yields. The wet, mild weather continued throughout the summer and into September, with the exception of a warm July. This resulted in uneven ripening and required careful handling of the vineyards. The weather finally gave way to sun in mid-September. Harvest took place later than normal, allowing the grapes to stay on the vine for as long as possible to fully develop varietal characteristics. Merlot was picked in late September and Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc in early October.

Winemaking Notes
The grapes were handpicked from mature vineyards and underwent cool fermentation and skin maceration. The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, 20% new, to develop supple tannins.
