Château Laulerie Red
Vignobles Dubard - Bergerac

The Dubard Family is for more than 30 years, the most famous producers of refreshing and reasonably priced wines in South-West France. The family members offer differing personalities of graduate oenologists, wine makers and viticulturists who together make up a dynamic and passionate team that has been renowned in the Bergerac wine region for decades. Being receptive to their terroir, combining common sense and long experience with ceaseless wine-making and viticulture: these are the founding principles on which the family has relied in their exceptionnel cuvées. They are also ongoing on the environmental label "HVE" (High Environmental Value).
The Dubard estate is located on sunny hillsides overlooking the right bank of the Dordogne, east of Bordeaux. Clayey limestone with high density planting (5,000 stocks per hectare). Vines: Around 25 years old - 81 acres - Yield: 50 Hl/Ha - 3 T. per acre
After destemming and crushing, the grapes are directly transferred to stainless steel tanks on their arrival in the winery. The temperature is kept rather low (59°F) for the first few days to bring out the flavors. The juice then undergoes a short (2 weeks) and rather cool (26°C) fermentation, during which daily pumping-over are realized. As soon as the fermentation is finished, the wine is drained to stainless tanks, where the malolactic fermentation and the ageing are carried out, prior to the components being racked out and blended.
Tasting notes
Lively red fruit with a hint of pepper describe the nose of this red wine. A supple and velvety palate, accompanied by berry fruit aromas make this medium-weight wine easy-to-drink and ideal for summer drinking.
Food pairing
The “raisin” can be matched well with roast poultry, barbecues, summer lunches, and many cheeses.
Aging potential
This is an early-drinking wine, which will be best enjoyed before 2016. Best served at 16°C.
