One word to describe my wine

The history of the Château
This vineyard bears the name of Bernadotte, a tribute to Germaine Bernadotte who married Jouandou du Pouey in the year 1615. Their son Jean kept the name Bernadotte. He was the ancestor of Marshal Bernadotte who was elected by the people of Sweden to succeed King Charles XIII. The Château is a delightful residence built in 1860 and renovated in 1989. Purchased by Curt Eklund, a Swedish industrialist, in 1973, it is today the property of Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande and joined the champagne house Louis Roederer group in 2007. Produced on a gravel soil, the wines of Château Bernadotte are endowed with a solid tannic structure. They are rich in colour, full-bodied yet delicate these wines have elegance and charm and a generous bouquet. Like the classified growths of the Médoc, they come from a vineyard of sufficient size and heterogeneity to allow for a rigorous selection, the guaranty of a quality beyond reproach. With this objective, a second selection is made at the time of blending creation Château Fournas Bernadotte/ This wine is less robust than the Château Bernadotte, with aromas of ripe fruit. It persists in the mouth with a long end delicate finish. This very pleasant wine is ready for early drinking.
