In its ruby colour with flashes of violet, Château Les Eyquems offers a charming, fine nose of hazelnuts and roasted almonds.
The estate of Les Eyquems is ideally situated on a plateau of gravel, clay and flint in the commune of Tauriac.
The Château has belonged to the Subercasaux family since 1753. Christian de Subercasaux is now in charge of the estate and is busy refurbishing the magnificent manor and continuing to plant the traditional Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties.
The wine is aged traditionally either in concrete vats with automatic pumping over or in stainless steel vats. Vinification is temperature controlled. The final blend is made with a proportion of wine aged in new French oak barrels.

In its ruby colour with flashes of violet, Château Les Eyquems offers a charming, fine nose of hazelnuts and roasted almonds. On the palate, it is clean and crisp with a smooth body backed by flavoursome, soft tannins, which subsequently come through without in any way upsetting the balance of the silky finish.
