TN : Chateau Ducluzeau 2001, Crus Bourgeois, Listrac-Medoc, France

Château Ducluzeau bears the name of the man who founded it. The vineyards are situated on the Listrac gravel plateau and have been owned by the Borie family for over 100 years. This chateau was classified as an ordinary cru bourgeois in the 2003 classification that has recently been overturned.

The vineyard is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvingon. The grapes were hand-harvested. fermentation and maceration was done at temperatures between 26 and 28 degrees. Pumping over was used during maceration of skins. The wine was matured for 14 to 18 months in 225 litre French oak barrels of which 10 to 20 percent were new.

The wine was imported by Swedish Brand AB. There is no mention of this wine on their website though. In fact, their web site is pretty awful with almost no interesting content.
