Chateau Le Puy Duc de Nauves Cotes de Bourdeaux
Grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
Château Le Puy has been in the Amoreau family since 1610 and overlooks the Dordogne River, on the same geological plateau as Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. There are 50 hectares of vines spread across 3 plots with soils made of clay, limestone and silica and all vineyard work follows biodynamics. The estate is now run by Jean-Pierre and his son Pascal who carry on the family tradition of natural fermentation and long ageing in old barrels, crafting wines of finesse, purity and outstanding ageing potential.
Duc de Nauves is Le Puy's second wine made predominantly from Merlot with a little Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. A fresh, fruit-forward wine packed with plum and blackcurrant fruit, woody spice and light, savoury tones.
