Description

This relatively young family owned Domaine was created in 2001 by vignerons with 4 generations of vinegrowing and winemaking expertise under their belts.  They own some seriously old vines in superb sites in the Southern Rhone on a mixture of soils of red sand, clay and the classic ‘Galet’ pebbles associated with Chateauneuf du Pape.  As a result, their wines posess a wonderful depth and concentration.


60% Grenache and 40% Syrah from 80 year old vines are hand harvested and then fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and old oak barrels, before blending and then ageing for a further 12 months in large demi-muid barrels.  This is a terrific wine which manages to expertly balance power, elegance and finesse – the hallmarks of great southern Rhone reds.  Stunning value.

2020 Cabernet/Shiraz, Hartenberg, Stellenbosch

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Cabernet/Shiraz from Hartenberg has a lovely vivid purple/red colour, with ripe berry fruits on the nose and hints of forest floor entwined with sweet spice. The palate reveals plenty of vibrant red fruit courtesy of the Cabernet Sauvignon alongside typical black pepper spice from the Shiraz.  There's plenty of juicy, crunchy fruit, soft gentle tannins and a velvety, elegant finish.

Saransot Dupre Brodeaux Rouge Half Bottle.JPG

2020 Chateau Saransot Dupre, Cru Bourgeois Superieurlistrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!
