Details

Chateau Damase Bordeaux Superieur has an attractive aroma of crushed strawberries with tobacco hints. Full round, soft with ripe berry fruit flavours, long. Perfect with red meats, game, wild mushrooms, meat terrine. Chateau Damase is home to Xavier Milhade, owner and chief winemaker. The viticultural techniques employed at the winery are done with the same care and attention to detail as those practiced at classified estates in Saint-Emilion, with small modifications made to suit the terroir of Chateau Damase. At harvest, the grapes are sorted again by quality. Following a selection of the best grapes, there is 100% destemming and a gentle crushing before transferring the berries to temperature controlled vats. A traditional Bordeaux fermentation takes place. Xavier Milhade’s objective is to strike a balance between obtaining good extraction and allowing the terroir to express itself. The wine is aged in new and 1-year-old oak casks and, after a light filtration, is bottled 18 months after the harvest.
