A superb red wine from the left bank of Bordeaux.

In 1948 Rene Debacque purchased the chateau and began a patient land consolidation, the property reached 10.5 ha by the 1980s, its now managed by Vincent and Thomas Debaque father & Son. Located in the commune of Libourne, 7km east of Saint Émilion and near the Dordogne river the microclimate is conducive to vine growing. The terroir is similar to that of the Pomerol and Saint-Emilion regions and composes of gravelly, sandy, brown soils. The average age of the vines is 40 years old with the oldest planted back in the 1940’s, the land is planted with 85% Merlot & 15% Cabernet Franc.

About This Wine...

“Following a carefully studied plot selection, the grapes are vinified with the aim of obtaining a fine, elegant and distinguished wine. The choice thus made after consultation with our oenologist, Marie Traissac, our Château Mélin is aged for twelve months in oak barrels. Château Mélin is a fine wine with an elegant garnet colour and a beautiful aromatic range with spicy and fruity notes (blackcurrant, blueberry). The palate develops a “light power” so great is the richness of the wine and the tannins are very velvety and melted.”

Thomas & Vincent Debacque, Winemaker at Ch Melin
