Notes from the Importer: David and Hélène Barrault took over this small vineyard in ’97. Blessed with rich clay and limestone soils, this vineyard possesses fantastic southern exposures and overlooks the Garonne River from its perch on the Gironde-sur-Dropt region. The chateau takes its name from a colorful local tale about what small animals “leave behind” before climbing the Tire Pé hill. The Barrault’s farm ten to fifteen year-old vines organically and great care is taken to gently extract the supple fruit and terroir, that Bordeaux is so well known for, into each cuvee they produce.

Tasting Note: Ruby in the glass with shimmering purple highlights. This youthful wine has a bright nose of fresh red fruit backed by a dusting of cedar infused minerality. Buoyant and fruity on the palate the Tire Pé Diem is packed with juicy red currant, crushed plum and sweet herbs. This is a pretty red with an easy fruity profile and a lingering finish.
