Chateau Plaisance Red Bordeaux 2015

Chateau Plaisance is a fruity and appealing claret, with fresh red berried fruits complemented by a hint of liquorice and dark chocolate through to a slightly earthy finish.

Producer Note - Château Plaisance is a property with 23 hectares of vineyard in the appellations of Bordeaux and Côtes de Bordeaux. The vineyard sits on a plateau surrounding the château with good sun exposure. Winemaker Ludovic Labarrere creates Merlot based wines which are wonderfully fleshy and fruit forward.

Vintage - 2015 has been hailed as an excellent vintage in Bordeaux. Generous flowering took place followed by a hot, dry early summer. August was slightly cooler and damper, followed by good weather in September enabling the grapes to reach full maturity. The wines have power and precision, particularly from the right bank appellations and many outstanding wines have been made from lesser appellations.

Vineyard - The vineyard is situated on sandy-clay and sandy-gravel soils which result in smooth and creamy wines. The vines have been trained with a high canopy to maximise the sunlight and optimise the photosynthesis of the plants, encouraging optimum maturity in the berries.

Winemaking - The grapes were carefully sorted. Fermentation took place in thermo-regulated concrete and stainless steel tanks. A long, slow fermentation took place in order to slowly extract the desired levels of colour, flavour and fine tannins. Post fermentation maceration lasted for two to three weeks. The wine was made in an unoaked style and was aged for 14 months in concrete tanks, preserving the purity of the fruit and the nuances of the terroir.

Tasting Note - Fruity and appealing claret, with fresh red berried fruits complemented by a hint of liquorice. The Merlot contributes the ripe, approachable fruit and supple tannins, while the Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure. The result is a beautifully balanced wine with a refreshing finish.

Serving Suggestion - Roast chicken or grilled sausages.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
