Château Bois-Martin 1999 by Leognan (Gironde) France.
The building landscape picture on the label is interesting. That is a château which is a manor house or residence of the lord of the manor or a country house of nobility or gentry, with or without fortifications, originally—and still most frequently—in French-speaking regions. The urban counterpart of château is palais, which in French is applied only to grand houses in a city. This usage is again different from that of the term “palace” in English, where there is no requirement that a palace must be in a city, but the word is rarely used for buildings other than the grandest royal residences. The expression hôtel particulier is used for an urban “private house” of a grand sort. Some castles are now used as hotels.
The red color on the bottle cap is also eye catching. I can tell it has a good stopping power for customer to buy this wine.
I have not tasted this wine yet. However, this is an interesting wine to put on my wine rack collection.
I can just imagine the amount of wine bottles you have….
Currently I have 187 wine bottles. However, some of them are doubled. I also have more than 100 bottles of liquors. Will post liquor after wine. 🙂
Pessac Léognan is the growing area, not the producer. The region used to belong to Graves but has now his own AOC.
Thank you, Friend. That is a great comment. 🙂 Currently, Pessac-Léognan is a wine growing area and Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée, in the northern part of the Graves region of Bordeaux.
