In 888 A.D., the Vikings invaded Bordeaux. Their long boats skirted the Médoc in full sail before stopping in this area, today called ‘LES EYRAUX’. Legend tells that, conquered themselves by the local wine, the Vikings let one winemaker keep his life in exchange for a few barrels of his best wine.
Today Coureau & Coureau, iconic Bordeaux Winemakers, produce and export their Merlot dominated Château Les Eyraux to discerning clients around the world. LE PACHA is the second wine of Chateau Les Eyraux, made in the same spirit with younger vines, with the same strict quality standards.
Winemaking: Mechanical harvest with strict table sorting. Aging in concrete and stainless steel vats, and 6 months in French Oak Barrels.
Tasting Notes: A beautiful ruby red color with a bouquet of red fruit and vanilla. In the mouth this easy-drinking wine is full of flavor, but supple, with delightful round tannins.
