Presentation of the estate:
Château Troupian is part of the Lestage Simon Cru Bourgeois estate and covers 40 hectares located all around the property.
Haut-Médoc enjoys a long-standing reputation, with some of the most famous name in the region. This reputation is due to the fact that since it is quite close to Bordeaux city, its vineyard was highlighted right from the 18th century. Estate-owners have used it to their advantage, to develop the image and reputation of their wines. This region extends over sixty kilometres, on the left bank of the Garonne and Gironde rivers, and 10km wide to the north of Bordeaux.
The vineyard comprises a very nice, limestone-shale area, ideally orientated and entirely suited to the development of the main grape variety planted here, Merlot. Château Troupian wine is very feminine and slightly woody with nice, cleanfruit aromas.
