Château de Cursol

Bordeaux Supérieur rouge

Viticulture: Traditional Bordeaux-style vine training, with two canes and a flat arch. Controlled grassing down of the vine rows or mechanical working of the soil, to improve the soils’ vitality and biodiversity. Manual “green harvesting”, for a homogeneous distribution and proper aeration of the grape bunches.

Sustainable farming methods are applied to the entire vineyard, which
enjoys HVE3 (“High Environmental Value”) certifications.

Tasting notes:
Ruby red in colour, Château de Cursol is round and suave in the mouth, with soften tannins.
A charming wine to enjoy with roasts and poultry.
