Vignobles Sullivan – Bordeaux
Château Auguste is a 74-acre Bordeaux Superieur estate located in the Right Bank region of Bordeaux within the Entre-Deux-Mers appellation. The enchanting name “Entre-Deux-Mers” – translated as “between two seas” or “tides” – refers to the Garonne and Dordogne rivers that form the boundaries of the triangular region. For thousands of years, the two rivers have deposited sand and gravel, eventually building up a sub rock of limestone. Given the fertile landscape, Romans were the first to plant vineyards here, with monks later developing the area during the Middle Ages. The estate is organically farmed, with the Château.
Bordeaux rosé 2018 (75 cl)
93% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon - 13% by VOL
Château Auguste is an approachable and exquisite Bordeaux in the whole sense of the word. Merlot is the dominant grape and Cabernet Sauvignon plays a supporting role, adding complexity to this great wine. There are aromas and flavors of blackberry, blueberry, dark plum, black cherry, licorice, and cedar all with a beautifully persistent finish.
Bordeaux rouge 2016 (75 cl)
80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc - 13.5% by VOL
Very pale vivid pink. Vibrant, mineral-accented strawberry, red currant, and tangerine scents carry a suave oral overtone. Racy, precise, and light on its feet with tangy red berry flavors and a bracingly beautiful minerality. Lithe and pure, with no excess weight but plenty of depth. A stony and fresh finish displays excellent clarity and persistence.
