The Ma Parcelle “La Butte aux loups” is a vintage in the Atlantic PGI appellation. This IGP is quite recent, as it was created in 2009. Indeed, it is an appellation that allows to classify the wines produced around the Bordeaux vineyard, and which do not meet the very limited specifications of AOC like Bordeaux.
This cuvée was born from a collaboration between Bernard Cazade, owner of Château Les Rambauds, and Bordeaux Tradition. Bernard Cazade and his family decided to produce a wine off the beaten track, by combining Malbec and Syrah, without hesitating to shake up the codes, especially to prepare for the future! Moreover, Bernard Cazade has selected these parcels to favor these two grape varieties and produce wines that are as easy to digest as possible with very reasonable degrees (2020=12.5%).
The property is almost entirely certified in Organic Agriculture. The cuvée “Ma Parcelle” will be officially organic from the 2021 vintage. Moreover, the packaging (bottle, label, cardboard) meets our Logic-Eco charter.
Terroir & Winemaking
The terroir on which “Ma Parcelle” is elaborated is on clay-limestone slopes. The blend of this wine is 80% Malbec and 20% Syrah. The vinification is done traditionally, and the maturing takes place in vats, without wood, in order to keep the fruity aromas of the berries as pure as possible.
At the tasting, the Ma Parcelle vintage is a very fresh and fruity wine, original for the region. Malbec and Syrah express themselves in a different way, fresh and balanced. Notes of black fruits, licorice and fine spices support the whole and bring a certain complexity to this wine.
