Since 2005, which signalled the first vintage vinified by Dourthe, Château Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac has successfully united man, nature and machine to earn its place alongside the true elite of the Saint Emilion Grand Cru wines. Château Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac is defined to a greater extent by its elegance and finesse than its robust structure. It delights with its balance and aromatic purity underpinned by delicate tannins and careful ageing.
Deep garnet in colour, the 2016 vintage reveals powerful, complex notes of violets and dark fruits, together with hint of spice. After the initial attack, the wine gradually gains in intensity on the palate, underpinned by its very fine-grained and silky tannic structure. The fleshy character, fruit and concentration, all in perfect harmony, bring great potential to the Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac.
