Chateau Saint Nabor

The history of this Rhône Valley family estate goes back a few centuries. To prove it, the current tasting room is located in an 11th century chapel and this amazing surrounding participates in the whole tasting experience.

The Castor family has been farming for several generations. From around 1870 until 1945, 3 generations worked on this small size farm, growing cereals, fruit, and grapes. Wine production was small and mostly for the family’s own consumption.

CÔTES DU RHÔNE VILLAGES CUVEE PRESTIGE – Château Saint Nabor (Rhône Valley, France)

Available Vintages: 2013

BLEND/COLOR: 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 15% Carignan

PALATE/BOUQUET: This wine has a dark red color with purple hues. On the nose it is powerful, yet delicate, with intense aromas of red and black fruits and spices. A delicate wooded overtone appears. The taste is supple and powerful, here we find the initial aromas. The tannins bring a remarkable fullness and insure the longevity of the wine.

VINTAGE NOTES: The grapes are harvested at optimal maturity, fully de-stemmed and crushed. Cold soak maceration (10-12°C / 50-54 °F) during 8 to 12 hours to extract color and tannins. The must macerates for 28 to 30 days. Color and tannins are extracted with daily pump-overs and several “rack-and-returns”. The free run wine and press wine are separated until final blend. Ageing in French Oak barrels for 9 months, use of neutral barrels to avoid strong oaky aromas and preserve great aromatic balance.
