Chateau Tour Des Gendres 'La Gloire de mon Pere' 2015

I have a deep and abiding love of the wines of Luc De Conti at Chateau Tour De Gendres. Luc’s wines are a reflection of his exuberant personality and the purity and expression of the grapes from his vineyards. Its taken him 15 years of organic/biodynamic viticulture to rid the land of any pollutants and transform the soils into a living thing. Manual harvesting and selection are paramount with several tries for the top cuvees - and the wines are only released if they conform to his high standards.

'My Father's Glory' is a blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Franc, destemmed with a long (30 day) natural yeast fermentation with micro-oxygenation and further malolactic in barrique. Elevage is in 50% new oak with the remainder in used barrique to soften the tannins. 

It’s a stunningly deep purple colour with oodles of blackcurrants encased in cedar wood and a lash of vanilla over a deep and persistent finish.
