35% Merlot, 30% Fer Servadou,
25% Syrah, 10% Cabernet
Traditional, de-stemmed harvests.
Maceration from 15 to 18 days at controlled temperature (26°C - 29°C).
Turbopigeage and daily pumping.
Deep and shiny red color with purple shades. Complex and powerful nose of ripe red fruits
(blackcurrant, raspberry), spices and liquorice. In the mouth, the attack is fresh and lively.
This wine has a nice tannins / fruits balance that begins to be expressed fully.
Its elegant but dense structure gives this vintage a very good aging capacity.
The Gaillac Château Labastidié Red 2008 is married to the Brie de Melun
and goes very well with other cheeses, poultry and red meats.
