Château Anniche Bordeaux Rouge
A rich and deep Bordeaux for any occasions. The fullness of the Merlot is balanced by the tannic, tight-knit structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon.
The irreplaceable know-how that stems from several generations of wine producers in Michel Pion’s family is today applied alongside the latest technological equipment and winemaking methods.
A 50/50 blend Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, unoaked but kept for 18 months before release. It is fruity, medium bodied, with a minty blackcurrant character. A full and rounded example that remains very accessible.
About the Producer
Michel Pion’s family has been based in the village of Haux since Napoleonic times. 72ha of the 80ha estate is planted with vines which include nearly all the major varietals of Bordeaux.
The irreplaceable know-how that stems from several generations of wine producers is today applied alongside the latest technological equipment and wine-making methods. Marrying tradition with modernity, vinification is carried out in a new winery with temperature controlled stainless-steel vats and oak barrels for ageing. This modern and precise control during the fermentation process is carried out alongside a strictly traditional method of maceration. The “assemblage”, or mixing, of the different grape varieties focuses essentially on their blending, the objective being to ensure harmony and balance.
In keeping with their principles of sustainable viticulture to maintain biodiversity, and aware of the decimation of the bee population, Château Anniche have installed beehives, nestling between the vines and acacia trees.
