Background

Tradition

Rich flavour and suppleness on the palate characterise Château Puynard Tradition and represent with sincerity the terroir of the Château as a whole. Château Puynard Tradition is the result of the assembly of our wines selected according to the characteristics of the parcel and vinified separately in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. This cuvée is aged without oak to reflect the singularity of its origins. It is an unfined wine, lightly filtered.

L'Abri

This exceptional cuvée of Merlot is produced through vinification integral with 100% new oak.  A cold pre-fermentation maceration followed by a gentle extraction amplifies the bouquet of the wine over time and obtains a generous body with deep tannins. The texture is silky and the finish is long with roasted and vanilla notes. It delivers charm and presence. Only 1200 bottles were produced.
