Château de Gironville:
This property has enjoyed a real renewal over the last 20 years. A Roman villa was originally located on the site before being replaced by a fort. This in turn was destroyed in the 17th century, to give way to the Château de GIRONVILLE, an estate with 155 hectares, of which 35 hectares of vines.

This property has enjoyed a real renewal over the last 20 years. A Roman villa was originally located on the site before being replaced by a fort. This in turn was destroyed in the 17th century, to give way to the Château de GIRONVILLE, an estate with 155 hectares, of which 35 hectares of vines. Owned by Bordeaux’s Mayor Mr Duffour-Dubergier, who also owned Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte in the Graves region, Château de GIRONVILLE produced a wine classified as “Cru Bourgeois Supérieur”. Alas, in 1929, the vines were all dug up and pine trees replaced the vines… From 1987, the owners decided to resurrect the vineyard and planted 10 hectares of vines on deep gravely soils. Within a short timeframe, great wines were produced and Château de GIRONVILLE has obtained several medals since 1990. From 2004, Vincent Mulliez is the new owner of this property and pursues this renewal, at the expense of qualitative efforts and significant investments. Read less

from [URL=http://2daysperbottle.blogspot.com]2 Days per Bottle[/URL].Night OneThe nose is a little closed, but if you give it some time and some air, it stars to release some odors. Black fruit is in the forefront, mulberry, blackcurrant and a little blueberry. There is also a hint of cedar and just the beginnings of some peppermint.The palate is a bit thin. The over-riding fruit is plum, plum skins and tart barely ripe fruit, and some sour blackberries. Some cigar box and violets appear on the mid-palate. Tannins are dusty but pretty well integrated with the fruit. The finish is short, it falls off a bit too quickly.Night TwoFlorals come to the fore on Night Two, lilac and roses, with an undercurrent of black fruits. On the palate, plum skins and blackberries open the attack, rose petals merge into plum skins and a hint of peppermint on the mid-palate. The finish is long, but mostly sour. Mouth-feel is a bit thin.
