In 1858 the Ducourt family created its first estate with a few hectares of vines in Ladaux, a small village southwest of Bordeaux. Today the Ducourts own one of the largest independent vineyards in the region with 440 hectares of vines spread over 13 châteaux in the Entre-Deux-Mers and Saint-Emilion appellations. These estates produce 2.5 million bottles a year. Four of the châteaux are represented by Planet Wine.
Situated in the commune of Ladaux, Château des Combes produces a very classic Bordeaux red. The vines cover 9.6 hectares and are planted on clay soils.
The fruit is cold macerated, and then fermented in stainless steel thermoregulated tanks. Malolactic fermentation occurs in stainless steel vats. The wine is then aged for 12 months in Oak Barrel and steel tanks.
The wine shows a dark ruby color with crimson hues. The bouquet is of mulberries and cherries with hints of vanilla and coffee. Round tannins and a smooth finish.
Enjoy with a roasted pork loin or a juicy steak-frites.
