Chateau La Hourcade 2014 has a red cherry colour. The nose is fresh and develops scents of raspberry, blackcurrant with spicy notes of black pepper. On the palate, the wine is young with good and ripe tannins.
Septimius Cecchini, the father of the current owner, arrived in the Medoc with the 1940 exodus. He became later the owner of Château La Hourcade, an estate of nearly 40 acres. He was both winemaker and postman at the beginning, and was the head of a family of 8 children. His son Gino, took over the estate in 1967. He had the opportunity to buy some surroundings parcels up to 4 hectares in 1986.
Today the property covers 18 hectares of vines. Until the 1987 vintage, he sold the production to the local cooperative. In 1988, he decided to leave the cooperative and to be in control of his distribution. He bought nearby plots gradually to expand the property and devoted himself to his two passions, wine and horses.
65% Cabernet sauvignon, 35% Merlot
