Château de Parenchère rises up from green countryside at the boundary between the Gironde and Dordogne departments in the eastern edge of Bordeaux. The foundations of this 18th century Perigord architectural ensemble were laid down in 1570 by Pierre de Parenchières, Lord of Fourgoignières. It was then totally destroyed and rebuilt in 1731. At the time, the fief of Parenchere was held by governor of the district of Sainte Foy la Grande.The Château de Parenchère vineyard lies on chalky soils with a very high clay content, which is unusual for this area and which goes some way to accounting for the strength of the wines produced. The vineyard is concentrated on 63 hectares (153ha total estate), planted on the estate’s best exposed plots and solely on hillsides so that rainwater drains away naturally. The Château became the property of the Gazaniol family in 1958 after Raphaël Gazaniol returned from North Africa where his family had been winegrowers for two generations. In January 2005, Mr Per Landin, a wine-lover from Sweden, in his turn fell in love with the estate, as well as the Parenchère wines, and so became a new shareholder

Tasting Notes

Chateau de Parenchere is made from a blend of four grape varieties from vines which are 20 years old on average. Merlot gives the wine its fleshy, black plum character whilst Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure and backbone, the rest of the blend is made up of Cabernet Franc and Merlot which add body and a spicy character. A harmonious wine with a good balance of soft fruit and tannin, the wine finishes long and fresh on the finish
