L’Équilibriste Bordeaux Rouge boasts the classic structure of Bordeaux wines with great aromas. It is a beautiful deep purple-red colour with intense nuances of blackcurrant, blackberry, blueberry and notes of peony, violet on the nose. On the palate, it is round, with crunchy and juicy fruit. Mineral and floral flavours continue on a subtle and silky tannic framework.
The blend for this first vintage is:
- 60% Cabernet Franc – offers aromatic finesse
- 40% Merlot – offers suppleness, fruitiness, and roundness
Ideal drinking period:
This cuvee is designed for drinking young (up to three years) to reveal the abundance of fruit.
The L’Équilibriste Bordeaux Rouge is ideal with roasted vegetables, grilled shellfish and Pâté en Croûte or other cold meats or charcuterie.
Sud Ouest – Bottle of the Week
“Here is a summer red as only Bordeaux knows how to produce: fruity and pleasant, which can be refreshing in hot weather. A wine to share with friends, to enjoy under the pergola with a platter of cold meats. Produced without added sulfites.”

“Bordeaux wines also know how to be real wines of pleasure and reveal expressive fruit.
With L’eEquilibriste, the new cuvée from château de parenchère, the estate takes one more step towards the Bordeaux that we love. Crunchy and delicious, made without added sulphites, from a winery on the way to organic farming respectful of the environment.”
