"The blueberry and orange-peel aromas are all here. Medium body, fresh acidity and an attractive aftertaste. A little lean, but should soften by 2021. A blend of 60 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 40 per cent merlot."

The history of Château Loirac goes back to the arrival of the Dutch in Bordeaux to develop the trade and export of wine. Built near the Gironde estuary and the sea, Château Loirac is a Médoc wine estate, a registered designation of origin, in the commune of Jau Dignac and Loirac, abandoned after the Second World War, Château Loirac was taken over in 1987 by friends who were passionate about wine and viticulture. That same year, the first parcels of vines were planted. Since then, the founders have endeavoured to improve and equip the production site to make Château Loirac a friendly place to produce a great wine. The estate has grown over the years with the acquisition of new plots. Today, the average annual production reaches 80,000 bottles. From the cellar to the colombière, all the buildings have been renovated in accordance with the architecture of the Médoc by local craftsmen. 2015, the forge adjacent to the colombière will be converted into a charming cottage.
