The Cuvée Raphaël is the flagship wine of Château de Parenchère. Made in memory of the renovator of the estate, Raphaël Gazaniol, it is produced from a selection of the finest plots and 40 year old vines with especially low yields.

Tasting Notes

The Cuvée Raphaël offers delicate aromas of ripe cherry and cassis on the nose. On the palate, the wine is harmonious; displaying power, structure and freshness all at once. The fruit is omnipresent and the tannins are present but very soft.

Food Pairing

An ideal pairing with beef ribs and roasted vegetables.
