Chateau Soleil 2008 (RP:89)


Château Soleil 和 Château Croix du Rival 能成為今天這樣,多得 Didier Miqueu 和 Stephan von Neipperg 的友誼。兩酒莊都是位於 Saint Emilion 的典型風土中。它反映了在波爾多長時期、艱苦、專心的搜尋被遺忘了的高品質風土。

於 2005年,他們購入了擁有上佳名聲,位於 Puisseguin 最佳風土的 Château Soleil。其 20 公頃的葡萄園常被喻為產區最佳之一,他們積極投資葡萄園和酒莊,讓風土徹底展示其潛質。


80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc



按不同年分,50-80% 的酒於新木桶中陳年 18 至 24 個月。





Château Soleil and Château Croix du Rival have become what they are thanks to strong friendships with Didier Miqueu and Stephan von Neipperg. Both estates are located on terroir typical of the Saint Emilion area. They represent the culmination of a long, painstaking, dedicated search for great forgotten terroirs in the Bordeaux vineyards.  In 2005, they purchased Château Soleil, an estate with a good reputation located on the best terroir in Puisseguin. Its twenty-hectare vineyard had always been considered one of the best in the appellation. They made major investments in the vineyards and winery, to enable the terroir to express its magnificent potential to the full.

Country of Origin:
Bordeaux, France

Grape Varieties:
80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc

Slow, controlled fermentation in concrete vats, skin contact, gentle extraction. The grapes from each plot are fermented separately. Malolactic fermentation in barrel.

50% - 80% of the wine is aged in new barrels for 18 - 24 months, depending on the vintage.

Tasting Notes:
Château Soleil is amazingly ripe for this late vintage. The wine is charming and well-balanced, with exuberant red-berry fruit and blackberries on the palate, as well as very silky, smooth tannins. Its well-balanced structure gives it great ageing potential.
A fine, well-focused wine, exemplary of the constant progress made on this estate, both in the vineyard and the winery, over the past few years.

Ageing Potential:
15 years
