Château Turcaud Rouge Wine has a beautiful garnet-red colour with purple highlights. It exhibits spicy aromas of pepper, clove and eucalyptus with hints of blackberry and red fruit as well as toasty, smoky, and forest floor overtones. The freshness on the nose is also to be found on the palate. Good, long, fruity aftertaste. The tannin becomes more round and the wine altogether more balanced after several months bottling. This wine can be enjoyed even when quite young thanks to its intrinsic fruitiness, and even benefits from being served slightly chilled. This wine reaches its peak within five to eight years after the vintage, slightly longer if in magnum. It pairs beautifully with poultry and red meat, especially entrecôte steak cooked over vine cuttings, as well as the cheese platter.
Château Turcaud Rouge Wine is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon Turcaud rouge is aged for about 18 months (two thirds in vat and one third in barrels). A final blend is made before bottling at the château.
