About The Wine
Cuvee K is the heart of the Massereau Estate and comprises nearly half their production, it is the wine they hang their hat on, and rightly so.
A lesson in the importance of balance it's a four way split between the Bordeaux classics: Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The quality of the organic viticulture is apparent, as is the gentle lo-fi touch in the winery, and this is a wonderfully transparent Bordeaux.
The French use the word 'digestible' to describe wines of this ilk, we don't use it so much but, in this instance, it is the perfect fit. Perfumed, balanced and medium bodied this is a serious Bordeaux but one that will leave you feeling energised.
About Chateau Massereau
Chateau Massereau is a rare Bordeaux gem that has resisted the industrialisation that has swept the appellation. Acquired in 2000 by brothers Jean Francois and Phillipe, the Chateau may be an imposing site on the Barsac landscape but the farming at Massereau is some of the gentlest and most thoughtfully considered in the region.
The brothers have chosen the natural path and work organically in the vineyards with a lo-fi natural approach in the winery. The pair produce red and sweet whites that are authentic, natural wines brimming with life. Look out for their Cuvee Tradition, a brilliant entry to Bordeaux at a handy price point.
