Founded in 1747, this old estate has since then been managed by the Noël family from 1936. The estate’s vineyards lie to the south on hillsides that are constantly exposed to the sun.
The vines are tilled, grapes picked by hand, vine rootstocks and grape varieties are selected according to the terroir’s properties. Château Barrabaque wines are aged in barrels with 40% of them in new ones. The “Prestige” is typically dark in color in its early years. As the wine ages, it turns a ruby color. On the nose is a remarkable bouquet of aromas - the palate is clean and exhibit top quality tannins that keep the structure of the wine.
The Château Barrabaque “Prestige” is pairs well with gamey meats, meat dishes with sauces, and young cheeses while the older vintages perfectly pair with red and white meats.
