Château Le Puy's 2019 Duc des Nauves is breezy, bright, and floral, with verdant piquancy and exactly enough grip for summer barbeque or a picnic 'charcuterie-and-cheese' plate. It's downright delightful on its own, too!

Château Le Puy's unique expression of Right Bank terroir has made them not just a cult name, but also one of the few Bordeaux labels to genuinely appeal to both younger, natural wine-focused drinkers and experienced claret classicists alike.

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Duc des Nauves is certified biodynamic as of the 2015 vintage). Planted to 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the vineyard is situated on the same Asterie-limestone mother rock as those of Le Puy, but at a slightly lower altitude—80 meters above sea level compared to Le Puy’s 110 meters. The topsoil is slightly sandier and less clayey here, and it is a bit deeper than at Le Puy—between 1.0 and 1.3 meters. In the cellar, Duc des Nauves is both fermented (spontaneously, of course) and aged in cement, and bottled without filtration after one year. Certified organic.
