The vines of Vieux Château Bayard are in the heart of the appellation Montagne Saint-Emilion (12 hectares), in the middle of the most prestigious terroirs of Libourne and the northeast extension of St. Emilion on the right bank of the Garonne and the Dordogne.
The buildings were built during the fourteenth century and its name is inspired by the famous Bayard knight who fought with François 1er at Marignan battle in 1515. The Chevalier Bayard stayed in the property which happens to be the oldest in the village and it attributed its name.
With 75% Merlot this is beautifully perfumed wine. Ample in the mouth, round with a lovely structure. Great fruit sings out on the full palate with tannins already melting. There's balanced freshness and a long finish. Very approachable and rewarding for such a young Bordeaux.
