Château Ambe Tour Pourret

Château Ambe Tour PourretLocated in Saint Emilion is Château Ambe Tour Pourret, consisting of a 5 acre vineyard, chateau and a winery.

Saint- Emilion is a commune in the Gironde department in Aquitaine in southwestern France.

The road was used by Louis X111 at the end of the 100 year war between France and England, fighting for freedom of the Aquitaine region.

Wine grape varieties

Interestingly enough Emperor Napoleon 111 decided to classify wines after the 1855 “Exposition Universille de Paris”.

This was a classification system from France’s best Bordeaux wines that were to be on display for visitors from around the world.

Brokers rated the wines according to the Châteaus reputation and trading price which was rated to quality.

The wines were ranked from 1st to 5th growths or Crus.

Today we rank the wines and the bottle of Chateau Ambe Tour 1855 is named this way due to Napoleon’s new system which happened in the same year.

The history of Château Ambe Tour Pourret

The remnant of the chateau dates back to 1811, where only part of the building existed until 1845 when the well known tower was built in the Middle Ages to watch the workers.

The acreage was completed in 1925 but was occupied by the Germans during the Second World War.

Wines from Château Ambe Tour Pourret

The Vineyards

Today the vineyard is planted with Merlot and Cabernet Franc on sandy and subsoil of clay.

The farming process consists of organic methods and they respect the land in order to accomplish great production.

The vines are over 40 years old, the grapes are hand harvested and the ageing is done in oak barrels lasting between 15 to 18 months.

Vats are used and filled for the vinification process where they use micro oxygenation and thermo regulation to gain the best possible outcome of the product that they expect to be of great quality.

Francoise works closely with her team as they integrate tradition and modern ways to produce good wine and respecting the land that has been passed on from generation to generation.

Philippe is a respected winemaker that believes that the wine produced “expresses the soul of their terroir.”

The Proof is in the Wine

“Bien nourri et mal appris,”as the French would say, “better fed than taught, “because you can learn a lot from wines and where they originate from but the proof is always in the taste rather than the read. So to wet your appetite, we will talk a little about the wines that you can enjoy at Ambe Tour Pourret.

St Emilion Grand Cru is a ruby red wine with hints of wood, overtones of ripe red berries and spices.

This wine is made from vines that are over 40 years old with a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc.

The grapes are handpicked and placed onto a vibrating table with a fermentation of 20 days and the wine is then matured for 14 months in French oak barrels old and new.

This wine is their trademark wine, but they do have others to offer and some of them are appellations in the region; Puisseguin Saint Emilion, Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux and Bordeaux Rose.
