Tasting Notes: The wine has an excellent depth of color and an explosive bouquet of truffles, violets and plums. The full-bodied palate is loaded with a melange of delicious red fruits and structured with soft, supple tannins. There is good balance and a long finish - a hallmark of quality.
Galaxy Notes: 85% Merlot, 10% Carmenere, %5 Petit Verdot The viticultural techniques employed at Chateau Damase are done with the same care and attention to detail as those practiced at classified estates in Saint-Emilion, with small modifications made to suit the terroir of Chateau Damase. At harvest, the grapes are sorted again by quality. Following a selection of the best grapes, there is 100% destemming and a gentle crushing before transferring the berries to temperature controlled vats. A traditional Bordeaux fermentation takes place. Gerard Milhadeā€™s objective is to strike a balance between obtaining good extraction and allowing the terroir to express itself. The wine is aged in new and 1-year-old oak casks and, after a light filtration, is bottled 18 months after the harvest.
