Château Le Maine Martin Bordeaux Supérieur
In order to maintain the tradition of Château Le Maine Martin, we always do our utmost to produce a good wine and at the same time preserving the richness of its character. We are very fortunate at Chateau le Maine Martin to have our vines planted on very different types of soil which enable us to cultivate four different grape varieties: Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon on gravely-sandy soil that is warm with not too much moisture, Merlot on move humid, cooler, clay soil.
The Character of the Wine
The wines of Chateau Le Maine Martin are rich in different aromas. They are soft, fruity and light, almost creamy, but with sufficient tannins to enable them to keep for up to ten years. After four years they are an unrivalled accompaniment for roast chicken turkey and pork. If you can bear to wait for 10-15 years in the case of a good vintage they will reveal all their mellowness, finesse and subtlety.
Chateau de Frégent Red Bordeaux
It is produced in exactly the same way. However in order to make it softer it is filtered several times to enable it to be drunk earlier. Furthermore, we select the softer, more approachable "cuvées" which will ensure that it is perfect for drinking within two to four years from the harvest. The vintage does not play such an important role here, however in the best years it can be kept for as long as 3-8 years.
Fruity, fleshy, generous and supple, Chateau de Frequent reveals a whole kaleidoscope of aromas and flavours.
Château de Frégent Bordeaux rosé
A rosé wine is half way between a white wine obtained without maceration on the skins and red wine whose colour come from leaving the juice in contact with the skins of red grapes. There is therefore no precise definition as to its colour. It is not an easy wine to produce as the colour can very from pale amber to rich cherry red and it demands a great deal of skill.
A light, frivolous wine, charming with its rich, delicate fruity freshness. Our rosé has 12° alcohol and is produced by crushing the red grapes, pressing them and vinifying the juice without maceration. A lively, fruity wine that should be served chilled, between 8° and 9° to accompany seafood, specialities from the South of France or other Mediterranean countries, salads and also barbecued meats.
Chateau Toulouze. Graves de Vayres
The only way in which we can guarantee the quality of Château Toulouze from one year to the next is by maintaining the traditional wine-making methods that will give the wine its great finesse and enable it to keep for a long period of time.
The Character of the wine
The wines from Chateau Toulouze are bright and limpid with a magnificent ruby colour, a pleasant, complex nose with floral bouquet (violets) and red fruit and sometimes prunes in years of excellent maturity. They have pleasant, silky, softened tannins and are fine and delicate – perfect for drinking young. They do however age well and improve in intensity and depth. As with all the great wines of Bordeaux, it should be drunk at room temperature, between 16° and 18°.
Leave the bottle to rest several hours before serving and open it approximately one hour before the meal. When young it can accompany white meats and poultry, but with age it is preferable to drink it with game, red meats and cheese. The members of the Oenology Department at the University of Toulouse described this wine as: supple, yet with good body and silky tannins that could almost be qualified as “feminine”.
