PRODUCTION

AND ALC. BY VOL.

Château Hourtin-Ducasse 1999

MENTIONS

  • Cru Bourgeois, 1932 classification

  • A silver medal at the 2001 International Wine Challenge in Blaye, France

DEGUSTATION

Deep garnet color.

Fine nose of undergrowth in autumn, dried fruit (figs), sweet spices (turmeric) with animal touches

venison, leather, smoky mineral notes, fresh menthol tones.

Good volume on the palate; the charm of an old wine having kept young characters at the level of the fruit in the mouth, fine tannins not drying.

To drink, (17 years old!). Do not decant, leave to evolve in a glass.

Harmonises with: duck with olives, duck tartare with porcini mushrooms, roast pork with figs, partridge roasted with juniper, boar fillet with pears… Cheeses: gouda, saint-nectaire… Desserts: pear in wine…
