Château Paradis Casseuil

The vintage
2019 was a vintage of contrasts, marked by strong local variations. With a cool spring, heatwaves in the summer and dry weather throughout the year, the weather conditions prevented the development of disease. The cold and rainy weather in June disrupted flowering, causing poor fruit set and uneven berry development and ripening. Then the water stress, variable depending on the sector and the terroir, led to blocked ripening. The berries were therefore small in size, resulting in relatively low yields. Fortunately the rain, which returned from 22 September, revived ripening and allowed the red grape varieties to achieve all their potential.
Merlot : 70%
Cabernet sauvignon : 30%

Garnet colour of good intensity.
There is lovely ripe fruit on the nose, dominated by aromas of black fruit like blackberries and Morello cherries, along with very discreet roasted notes. Full-bodied, supple and crunchy on the palate, it has a silky tannic structure and attractive elegance on the finish.
