Despagne-Rapin Les Piliers de Maison Blanche
The Les Piliers de Maison Blanche is the “second” wine of Château Maison Blanche. It is made from a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc, harvested from organic and biodynamic farmed vines. The vines average in age from 45 to 75 years. The natural fermentation was done in concrete vats, and was followed by 15 months ageing in second use French oak barrels.
Deep ruby red in colour, the Les Piliers de Maison Blanche has aromas of blueberries, earth, and barrel spice. Full bodied with supple tannins, the palate has generous flavours of blackcurrants, plums and dark chocolate. Lush and moutfilling, it has a lingering finish.
