At Chateau Puynormond, they believe that blending two grape varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Franc is the winning combination. The Merlot brings the fruit, some color and makes the wine flesh and the Cabernet Franc adds some complexity as well as a floral nose. The mouth is full of tannins but with a velvet finish. The weather of the region is strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean; which gives us beautiful back seasons, favorable to a good maturity of the berries. The vineyard is managed with supervised control in order to respect the fauna. The first tool is not the vine but its terroir, and you need to make it live, breath and increase its microbial life. For a better quality of our grapes, the leaves are manually thinned and they practice green harvests.
