Bordeneuve Rouge, Red Gascony wine since 1983
Blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Tannat. It is the meeting of all the influences of the great Gascony region.
This wine was bottled for the first time in 1983 at the domain. 30 years of experience in red wines of the region led us to produce that fruity and intense Bordeneuve rouge.
Merlot is a grape of Spanish origin who ventures in France thanks to the comings and goings of pilgrims paths of Saint-Jacques de Compostela. Early in the Southwest of France, pilgrims disseminate this variety. Few centuries later, Merlot will become the emblem of the right bank of Bordeaux.
Merlot is so settled in the South West that all the local vineyards (Cahors, Fronton, Gaillac, Madiran) include this grape in their specifications. Gers and Côtes de Gascogne which have two historic routes of Saint Jacques was one of the first home land.
